Does management have the resources & desire to engage in the reorganization process?

By Diane Drain Attorney & Retired Law Professor
Bankruptcy reorganization in Chapter 11 requires significant time on the part of the owners and managers to comply with the requirements of the bankruptcy system. This option is far from inexpensive.
The business must have a very viable future in order to seek this remedy. Most reorganizations fail, usually for lack of the ability to stick to a budget, or to control the events and costs that forced the company into a bankruptcy. Many times the Debtor’s owner has no real idea how much time and effort goes into a successful chapter 11.
The value of the bankruptcy for the company and its owners/shareholders is that, in exchange for the protection of the automatic stay and other bankruptcy protections, the debtor provides full disclosure of its financial condition to creditors and the court, both at the beginning of the case and on a monthly basis in a form of a income and expense statement, and operates as a fiduciary for its creditors while the bankruptcy is ongoing. Meaning that the owner of the company must make decisions for the benefit of the creditors, not for his own benefit.

I can’t say enough good things about Diane. The way she handled my not typical circumstances was amazing. I was very nervous to start the bankruptcy process but Diane just has a very comforting way of explaining the whole process. My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner.

Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event, and selecting the right attorney can add to this stress. Diane and Jay were a pleasure to work with, and it is obvious that they are passionate about helping people get their life back on track. I would highly recommend them if you need a bankruptcy attorney.
