Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Your Trusted Legal Ally

Seattle Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Attorneys

Helping You Rescue Your Washington Business

If your LLC, partnership, or corporation is struggling with debt, you may be able to restructure through Chapter 11 bankruptcy. While more expensive and complex than Chapter 7 and 13, Chapter 11 allows both individuals and entities to retain control over their assets and businesses while they reorganize. If you qualify as a small business, you may achieve relief through a simpler version of Chapter 11 called Subchapter V.

When your future financial security is on the line, you need nothing less than exemplary legal support. At Seattle Consumer Justice, we have decades of experience guiding both individuals and businesses through Chapter 11 bankruptcy. We want to put our skills to work for you in achieving debt relief.

If you want the highest possible chance of keeping your business while reducing its financial obligations, we are here to support you every step of the way.

How Filing for Chapter 11 Can Benefit You

A Chapter 11 reorganization plan allows business debtors to sell or surrender unwanted or unneeded assets to creditors. This means you can refinance and reclassify debt from secured to unsecured based on the value of collateral. This can allow for a limited liquidation on your terms, in which you, rather than a trustee, choose what to sell to pay your creditors.

For instance, if you have a rental property valued at $200,000, but you owe the mortgage creditor $300,000, then $100,000 of that debt can be classified as an unsecured claim and will be paid whatever percentage the class of unsecured claims is receiving.

Additionally, you may be able to sell leases and other contracts. This can become a powerful bargaining tool, allowing you to downsize your business without becoming stuck with the obligation of a lease. It can also make a lease assignable when it would not otherwise be, allowing you to sell an attractive lease as a way to pay other creditors.

If you are filing as a business entity, you can receive a discharge of your unsecured debt upon confirmation of your Chapter 11 business reorganization plan or shortly thereafter. If you are filing as an individual, you generally become eligible for discharge after making payments to your unsecured creditors for 5 years.

The Corporate Workout: A Bankruptcy Alternative

Bankruptcy isn’t always the best option for a struggling business. At Seattle Consumer Justice, our goal is to help you reduce your financial obligations through whatever method is most appropriate for your unique situation.

We can negotiate a workout agreement with your lenders. A workout is a contractual agreement in which the lender waives existing defaults and restructures the terms of a loan.

Because there is no way to force a lender to accept a workout, the agreement must be mutually beneficial. Our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of what will motivate a lender into accepting a workout. We will use this knowledge to achieve the best possible resolution for your case.

A corporate workout is a complex process. Our team will prioritize your best interests if we decide to move forward with this option.
