Understanding Business Bankruptcy

Florida Business Bankruptcy Lawyer

What Is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows businesses to reorganize their debts and restructure their finances during a time of financial hardship while still staying in operation. My name is Barbara Cusumano, and in my 20+ years as a North Florida bankruptcy lawyer, I have been able to help thousands of clients around the state discharge tens of millions of dollars in debt.

Put simply, Chapter 11 is a form of bankruptcy outlined in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code that is typically utilized by corporations, small businesses, and — in some rare cases — private individuals who are struggling to pay off heavy debt loads. Well-known companies including K-Mart, United Airlines, and General Motors have all filed bankruptcy under Chapter 11. This plan allows the business to submit a plan for post-bankruptcy viability. It could include innovative sources of income or cost reductions.

The reorganization plan, if approved by a bankruptcy court judge, effectively buys the business time to rebuild while discharging certain debts.
