Jim Hammerschmidt Provides Commentary in Article Regarding Small Business Optimism

Jim Hammerschmidt, Principal

Jim Hammerschmidt provided commentary regarding small business optimism since the November election in an article addressing the Wells Fargo survey of small businesses.

Wichert's opinion is echoed by James Hammerschmidt, a labor and business lawyer with the Paley Rothman Law Firm in Bethesda, Maryland. Said Hammerschmidt: "The decision to appoint Puzder as labor secretary is a big indication that there’s going to be a significant rollback"...of the current administration's initiatives. Wichert believes that this reset will result in growing small business confidence, job creation, and rapid expansion under the upcoming Trump economy.

Jim is Co-Chair of the firm's Employment Law practice group and a member of the firm's Litigation and Appellate practice groups.
