Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
For Businesses & Corporations

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be a good option for business owners who wish to liquidate their business assets to cover outstanding debts. Whether or not this solution is right for you depends on the structure of your business and the level of personal liability. Chapter 7 business bankruptcy can be used for sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations that lack substantial assets to cover their debts – making reorganizing under Chapter 11 unrealistic. We understand how stressful the situation can be and have the expertise to guide you throughout the process.
