Is Bankruptcy Right for Your Business?

Bankruptcy law is a centuries-old debt relief option. Today the process depends on which chapter of bankruptcy best serves your goals. There are numerous factors involved: the types and amount of debt, assets, income, profits, and contract and non-contract rights and obligations.

Business Bankruptcy Solutions helps you with these types of small business bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7. Often called liquidation bankruptcy, the business owner dissolves the company and frees themselves from debt. If the business is to continue, it cannot use Chapter 7.
  • Chapter 11. Chapter 11 restructures the debt and contracts of a company. Small business owners use Chapter 11 Subchapter V. It allows the firm to reduce debt and modify contracts. Management continues in place, running the business and retaining the business assets. The business will need a reliable source of revenue, however, to qualify for the required three to five year payment plan.
  • Chapter 13. Like Chapter 11, Chapter 13 restructures debt into a payment plan. The plans last up to five years, eliminating debts by the end of the plan term, with no loss of assets. However, this option only available to individuals and sole proprietors, not business entities.

Each chapter of bankruptcy is unique, but all provide a powerful benefit: the automatic stay. A court order takes effect when the bankruptcy is filed. The stay prohibits creditors and debt collectors from most collection attempts.

Let’s Get Started Today

Of all the steps you will take to help your business survive adversity, retaining professional and experienced support is the most productive. I founded Business Bankruptcy Solutions because I like putting my skills to work for entrepreneurs like you. When you need financial and legal solutions for your business, hire someone who knows where you are coming from and how to build the future you deserve.

Ending Creditor Harassment

The automatic stay is particularly powerful for businesses, because unlike consumers, businesses are not protected from creditor harassment by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA prohibits an extensive list of abusive and deceitful collection tactics. Consumers can sue debt collectors for such harassment. But businesses, along with an individual liable for commercial debt, generally do not have this protection.


Fill out an online contact form or call (720) 674-7311 to schedule your free consultation. I offer evening and weekend appointments to accommodate your schedule.


Finding Alternatives to Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy can have serious consequences. It is expensive, and it takes months or years to complete. Generally, a business will only benefit from bankruptcy if out-of-court contract and debt-relief options are impractical or insufficient.

This is why, when you work with me, I help you explore every alternative before choosing bankruptcy. We may be able to negotiate with landlords and creditors, or devise a new strategy for the business or assets, or even hibernate your business until economic conditions have improved. As a lawyer by training and businessman by nature, I have your best interests in mind and the requisite knowledge to help you succeed.
