Are You a Candidate for a Workout or Bankruptcy Alternative?

Many commercial clients who think they need bankruptcy protection are better served by a loan workout or debt restructuring. Our lawyers will explore all your options to find the best solution for your business.

Creditor Relief and Reorganization Under Chapter 11

Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy puts all creditor actions on hold, including collections, judgments and commercial foreclosure proceedings. If your business is underwater due to debt and cash flow problems, our attorneys’ roles are to help you take stock and chart a path to solvency. The main component is a plan of reorganization that spells out how your company will repay debts over time. The Chapter 11 plan must be confirmed by your creditors, so it has to strike a balance between writing off debts and keeping your business afloat.
