Pearson Quoted in The Hollywood Reporter on SBA Loans in Hollywood

– The Hollywood Reporter

Manatt Entertainment Leader Lindsay Conner and Manatt Financial Services Partner Scott Pearson spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the availability of SBA loans for small businesses in Hollywood under the CARES Act.

That said, Pearson noted that there has been talk of relaxing rules surrounding these forms of investments, which has “tremendous bipartisan support.” Conner added that “the question of who in Hollywood will benefit will depend on who is nimble enough and persevering enough to get to the right banks and make arrangements in time to get in.”
