  • Practice Areas

    Bankruptcy – Liquidation

    Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code provides a means whereby the debts of both individuals and business are extinguished. For businesses, the result is almost always a liquidation of the business. For individuals, the assets and liabilities first must be determined, and are then divided among the individual and creditors according to the bankruptcy rules and as approved by creditors.

    Business Reorganization

    Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code provides a process whereby individuals and business may reorganize their debts. The key to a successful reorganization is often the development of a workable plan based upon the management of the assets involved and the acceptance of the plan by creditors.

    Farm-Related Bankruptcy

    Chapter 12 of the Bankruptcy Code is directed to the reorganization of farming operations. Like a plan developed under Chapter 11, a successful re-organization of a farm-related bankruptcy is often dependent upon the creation of a workable plan based upon the farming assets involved.
