There is opportunity in troubled times.  COVID-19 has disproportionately affected certain types of businesses, while leaving other businesses unscathed.  While no one could have predicted the COVID-19 pandemic and its' negative impact on restaurants and other service and retail establishments, every business owner should plan on troubled times happening.  For better or worse, lawyers are trained to look for everything that could go wrong and to try to protect against those things.  There will always be some future event that has a negative impact on your business.  You can't plan for everything, but you can lay the groundwork now to be able to withstand the storm later.
