Experienced Detroit Business Bankruptcy Lawyer
When filing for bankruptcy, a business or corporate client has the option to choose between three types of bankruptcies depending on its business form. These options are usually categorized as either liquidations or reorganizations, depending on the type of bankruptcy that is filed.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to liquidate a business’s assets in order to distribute them to creditors. This type of bankruptcy is appropriate when restructuring the debts of a business is not an option, when no substantial assets are available, and when the business lacks a future. Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a corporation or partnership to restructure its finances through a reorganization plan and continue operating. The reorganization plan details how outstanding debts will be repaid over time. Chapter 13 bankruptcy usually involves a sole proprietorship and allows a business to develop a reorganization plan based on income, expenses, and type of debt.
Before filing for business bankruptcy, it is important to consult with a Detroit business bankruptcy lawyer to discuss which option is most beneficial to your organization.
