You have worked hard to build your business, you should work just as hard to save it!
Chapter 11 bankruptcy is an option that partnerships, limited liability corporations, small and large businesses, and corporations have available to them to restructure their finances, and alleviate the burden of debt. It is also available to individuals whose debt burden disqualifies them from a Chapter 13 filing. As with other bankruptcy petitions, once the petition is filed, the case begins and an automatic stay of all collections actions is put into effect. This means creditors may not pursue existing or new collection activities for unpaid pre-petition debts unless the court issues a modification to the stay. This provides an opportunity for the debtor to draft a reorganization plan and negotiate more feasible and tolerable repayment terms without worrying about its debt obligations. Under court supervision you are still able to continue to operate your business. Each situation is unique and presents a range of possible options. So, please call to speak with a member of our bankruptcy team at Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP to discuss options available to your specific situation.
