Is Chapter 11 Business Bankruptcy the Right Option for Your Struggling Business?

What Are the Bankruptcy Options Available for Businesses?

When a business is in trouble and is unable to pay its creditors, business owners can opt to file—can be forced by their creditors to file—for protection under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 business bankruptcy.

  • Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy usually results in the business’s assets being fully liquidated to pay off as much debt as possible to its creditors. Any remaining debts will be written off, and the company will then be forced to cease operations for good.
  • A Chapter 11 Business Bankruptcy enables the filing company to stay in business while the court supervises the re-organization of its contractual debt obligations. The court can grant complete or partial relief from most of the company’s debts and contracts, so that the company can make a fresh start. The company will make manageable monthly payments to a guarantor who will handle repayment of debts to creditors until the negotiated debts are paid off.

Unless you have given up all hope that your company might one day be successful, Chapter 11 business bankruptcy is usually the best option. Allow the bankruptcy attorneys at Thomas W. Lynch & Associates to help get your company’s finances in order so you can move its balance sheet from red to black.

Client Testimonial:

“Great bankruptcy attorney. We believed we had a complicated bankruptcy case and met with Mr. Lynch to discuss our case. He has engaging and made it easy for us to understand our bankruptcy options. He communicated clearly what the next steps in filing our Chapter 13 case would be and after we got him our documents, he followed through on what he said he was going to do. In fact, he was successful in removing our second mortgage lien from our property!”
