Chapter 11 Can Overcome Business Debt

In a competitive economy, it takes very little for a business to become overwhelmed by debt. A business interruption, a health crisis for an owner or partner, or another setback might be all it takes. Thankfully, there are options for businesses to overcome debt and keep moving forward. One of those options is filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Sound Guidance Through A Complex Process

Chapter 11 is a type of bankruptcy typically used by businesses. It can be used by sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations. However, the way it will be used will vary dramatically depending on the business entity. For example, Chapter 11 for a sole proprietorship where the business owner's assets and the business's assets are intertwined will be much different from Chapter 11 for a corporation that is a distinct entity.

The issue only becomes more complex from there, making it critical that you choose an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process. You can find that lawyer at the law offices of Gillespie & Murphy, P.A.
