Is Bankruptcy Right For Your Business? We Will Help You Decide.

Our practice involves taking the time to understand your goals for the business and develop a plan designed to help you accomplish them. We will help you determine whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 is right for your business. Whether you own a type of partnership, proprietorship or corporation, we can help you with:

  • Dissolution: Bankruptcy provides a way to successfully wind down a business. It addresses debt issues together, so that you can put a final end to both the business and collection activity.
  • Business reorganization: Reorganizing a business through bankruptcy can help you continue to operate by freeing up funds to finance operations, provide an avenue for ending contracts or leases that are not beneficial and prevent the sale of business assets to pay debt.
  • Protecting your personal property: Even though a debt may result from the operation of a business, you could be personally liable. This liability depends on the structure of the business, whether you personally guaranteed a loan and other factors.
  • Resolving tax liability: Although payroll taxes cannot be discharged through bankruptcy, we can work with the Internal Revenue Service to help you resolve back taxes, including payroll and property taxes.
