Chapter 11 For High Net Worth Individuals
Individuals with large amounts of debt may also file Chapter 11 in order to take advantage of a court-ordered payment plan if their debts exceed their ability to repay them. Chapter 11 has provided a solution for numerous business owners who have been sued for a deficiency resulting from a failed business, struggling with significant tax liabilities, or unable to make debt payments following a financial setback. With our Chapter 11 counsel, these individuals have been able to tackle these challenges and proceed with their lives.
A Fresh Start
Filing for bankruptcy can be a complex and overwhelming process, but it may be the best decision for your financial future and the success of your business. In order to help you navigate the process, we offer experienced and compassionate legal guidance to protect your interests and help you find relief from your debts so your business can continue to operate successfully.
Preparing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy involves a careful evaluation of the business’s financial situation, developing a reorganization plan, and determining how to address creditor claims while protecting the interests of the business and its owners.
Chapter 11 can provide much needed time for a business to analyze its operations and develop a plan to address all creditors in a comprehensive manner. Immediately upon filing, all creditors must stop contacting you, all foreclosures and lawsuits must stop, and many payment obligations can be delayed or eliminated until your plan is approved by the bankruptcy court.
Through a court-approved repayment plan, business owners can restructure their financial obligations and secure greater financial freedom. The repayment plan allows them to modify loan terms, eliminate unnecessary expenses, catch up on overdue taxes, sell assets, and defer payments to creditors while stabilizing cash flow.
