  • Business Bankrupcty

    Business Bankruptcy

    Bankruptcy is an essential business tool and not one that you should be afraid of.

    Risk is the heart of the capitalist system and bankruptcy is the tool you use when your risks don’t work out. It gives you the opportunity to start again, or simply to renegotiate so that your creditors become partners in your success rather than adversaries. Your creditors are investing in you when they give you a loan, usually hoping to make a very large profit, and when things don’t go well, there is nothing wrong with asking them to share in the bad times as well as the good.

    …but other times special bankruptcy court rules apply. This gives a big advantage to whomever best knows the rules. When deciding whether to file bankruptcy, it is important that the law firm understands your specific situation and is strategic about the exact time and place that you file. The success of your entire case depends on the intelligence of your bankruptcy strategy.
