CORPORATE BANKRUPTCY
Stop the chaos, take charge

A chapter 11 bankruptcy affords a business the ability to keep operating as usual. It also protects your assets and provides a reprieve from any creditors’ attempts to collect debt. This way, your business will have space to continue servicing its customers as usual; but at the same time, it will gain breathing room to make necessary long term changes.

There are many options that can benefit a company’s long term plan, such as: a full scale reorganization, a downsizing of the business, rejecting unexpired leases or contracts, a structured wind down or a controlled liquidation. These options are strategies through which many businesses are saved and can get back to a profitable position.

Goals can be:
  • To maximize business profitability without incurring breach of contract fees.
  • A reprieve from growing debt.
  • A halt to litigation and other collection efforts.
  • Achieve a 5 year discounted debt-repayment plan.

PERSONAL BANKRUPTCY
Goodbye creditors, hello fresh start

A personal bankruptcy is often a last resort. But for a last resort, bankruptcy can be a game changer, giving people the chance to start over and succeed.

In a personal bankruptcy, filing for chapters 7 or 13 are most common. Filing for chapter 7 may be perfect for individuals with exempt assets and burdensome debt. Likewise, filing for chapter 13 may be the best roadmap option for an individual with significant debt, while still preserving assets.

Goals can be:
  • A clean slate and the chance to rebuild your financial landscape.
  • Restructuring your financial landscape without losing your assets.

3. General unsecured claims: typically personal loans, medical bills and unsecured business related debt.

A creditor or any interested party may wish to submit a bid on the debtors assets prior to or at an auction. A creditor may also benefit from participating in a court litigation. Proper counsel and guidance is necessary to navigate the complex legal process.
