Find a Hopkinton Business Bankruptcy Attorney in your area

Business Bankruptcy

A Hopkinton 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.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
