When most people think of a bankruptcy, they only think of very big Chapter 11 bankruptcies filed by major corporations such as airlines or auto manufacturers. Normally, however, business bankruptcies can be filed by regular small businesses.
Walnut Creek Business Bankruptcy Attorney
Attorney Thomas R. Burns has more than 20 years of representing business clients in the Bay Area. He advises them as to their options with respect to business debt and how a business bankruptcy can benefit their business. In many cases, the business can continue to operate during the bankruptcy process.
Many times, these businesses are operated as sole proprietorships so there is no difference in personal or business debt. Other times, the business is operated as a corporation (such as an LLC or S Corp.) In this case, the business is very often considered an asset of the person filing for a bankruptcy and may need to be protected in the bankruptcy if the client wishes to continue operating the business after the bankruptcy.
Our firm can advise you with respect to the nature of your debt and how both you and your business can be protected from creditors under the bankruptcy laws.
