Understanding Business Bankruptcy
Florida Business Bankruptcy Lawyer
What Is Chapter 11 and 7 Business 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. Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides an orderly way to close businesses and pay a percentage distribution to creditors based on the value of the business assets. My name is Barbara Cusumano, and in my 20+ years as a Florida bankruptcy lawyer serving Gainesville, St. Petersburg and Central and North Florida, I have helped thousands of clients discharge tens of millions of dollars in debt.

If you are the owner of a struggling business in Gainesville, Lake City, St. Petersburg or the surrounding communities, I can help you consider your debt relief options and work toward a solution that fits your business needs.
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.
