Our attorneys have worked with many businesses, guiding them through difficult financial setbacks. We understand how uncollected debts (for the creditor) and the inability to pay debts (for the debtor) can affect a business and all those associated with the business.
At our law firm, we can help you negotiate agreements associated with debt payments, litigate where necessary, and work through all the requirements of bankruptcy proceedings.
Representing creditors: When a business that owes you money is going through a bankruptcy, this affects your business, too. Our law firm can explain your rights as a creditor and file the necessary documents to obtain payment on your accounts receivable.
Representing debtors: We recognize how difficult it can be to deal with financial reverses in a business. Your lawyer will protect your rights and help you develop a plan to work through your financial issues while keeping creditors informed.
