If your business is at risk of closing down because of significant financial burdens, you are not alone. Recently, thousands of companies have had to seek solutions for debt relief. At the Law Offices Of Mayer & Newton, we have helped many of those companies find the relief they need through filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Although this form of bankruptcy is more complex than others, such as Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, it is often an effective way for companies to not only restructure their debts and remain in business, but also make the company profitable again.

Chapter 11 gives business owners the opportunity the reorganize their debts, assets, and affairs in pursuit of a fresh start. It involves proposing a plan of reorganization to pay back creditors over time. Although Chapter 11 is the most complex of all bankruptcy cases, and only entered into after all other options have been exhausted, it has enabled many business owners to escape scenarios of overwhelming debt and end up in a position of financial security.
If your business has failed to make a profit over the course of several consecutive months, then filing for Chapter 11 might be the right path to get you out of debt.
There are several benefits of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, including:
- Restructure your debts into lower monthly payments
