The firm has over twenty years of experience in successfully representing parties in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy cases. Chapter 11 provides an opportunity for businesses and individuals to restructure and reorganize their debts through a Court approved plan of reorganization. In many cases, it is advantageous to use the Bankruptcy process to sell all or substantially all of the client’s assets through the Chapter 11 process, or to negotiate a resolution of the debt and obtain a structured dismissal that allows the client to continue in business.
We have also represented individuals in Chapter 11 cases in which the clients have income, debt or assets that are inappropriate for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
Our experience in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy cases includes:
- Confirmed Chapter 11 Plans of Reorganization allowing clients to successfully emerge from Chapter 11 and continue operation.
