Share your business problems and solutions with the rest of us firehose drinkers and listen to a Jerry Chesser which will be speaking on the topic of “Drinking from the firehose” as we were all suffering from the bad economy and not enough work six years ago, and now we are suffering from almost too much work and not enough painters to get it done! Gennaro DeSantis, an attorney at Maso Partners, will be discussing the pros and cons of using subcontractor painters versus employees, and then a question and answer period regarding business and real estate law.
