Chapter 11

If your business is struggling to deal with large amounts of debt, Chapter 11 bankruptcy may be the best option for you. In a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, businesses or individuals are given the chance to propose a plan that allows business owners time to repay their debts and obtain the new beginning they need. The goal of Chapter 11 is to provide businesses with an opportunity to restructure and emerge more viable.

Johnson May has substantial Chapter 11 experience. We are well prepared to work closely with you to increase your chances of finding a favorable resolution to your financial distress issues. Our experienced bankruptcy lawyers will walk you through the process and advise you as to the realistic options available to improve your situation.
