CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Grillo's Pickles began with a pickle cart, just a small wooden stand in downtown Boston, where Travis Grillo and his friends would sell two spears for one dollar. Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle. It was a small business but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.

Fred and Danny Magnanimi grew up watching their father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry in the family's Cranston, RI jewelry manufacturing business. When the boys grew up, Fred moved to New York and began working on Wall Street as an investment banker, while younger brother Danny, still enamored by the family business, stayed home.

        Scammers Obtain Fraudulent SBA Loans by Posing as Legitimate Companies

        When tragedy hits, there are always nefarious people who will try to profit. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is no exception.

        There have been recent instances in which scammers have successfully used publicly available information of unsuspecting companies to fraudulently apply for Economic Injury Disaster Loans from the Small Business Administration (SBA).  In one example, a UCC search performed on an entity in advance of a closing returned an unexpected UCC-1 filing in favor of the SBA.

        The good news is that once the SBA was informed, it took steps to discharge the UCC and provided assurances that the company would not be responsible for repayment of the fraudulent loan. Resolution of these issues, however, can take some time and could delay a closing.

        Therefore, the Business Law Group at Partridge Snow & Hahn encourages clients to be vigilant and perform UCC searches on their businesses to ensure that there have been no unexpected filings. We are available to assist with performing such searches and with guiding clients through the process of dealing with the SBA and having any unexpected UCC filings discharged.
