Business Bankruptcy

A Old Westbury Business Bankruptcy can be a great option if your business is unable to meet its financial obligations and is looking to either restructure debt obligations or liquidate assets. Depending on your company’s current financial position, one or both strategies may be an option.

Business Bankruptcy Options

Provided the bankruptcy is not involuntary, your Business Bankruptcy Attorney may recommend either a Chapter 11 (“reorganization”), or chapter 7 (“liquidation”) bankruptcy to deal with your company’s financial issues.

A Chapter 11 allows a business to reorganize debts and pay off creditor’s over a period of time up to five years. A Chapter 7 liquidation forces the company to literally liquidate all assets, pay off creditors, and ultimately, stop operating. This is typically the least desirable option that your Business Bankruptcy Attorney will try to help you avoid.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you’ve suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney’s experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.

Common legal terms explained

Personal jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority over a person, in order to bind that person to the judgment of the court, based on minimum contacts. International Shoe Co v. Washington is a landmark Supreme Court case outlining the scope of a state court’s reach in personal jurisdiction.
