While there was no shortage of mega-bankruptcy filings last year, bankruptcy attorneys continue to scratch their heads at the absence of small-to-midsized corporate bankruptcy filings. There are several reasons for that absence. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) provided meaningful assistance to small business owners. In addition, economic stimulus checks provided some relief. Moratoriums were placed on federally guaranteed loans, and many states and cities halted evictions actions. With the change in administration, many are likely still trying to survive long enough for another round of stimulus.
