St. Petersburg Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Attorney

Bankruptcy for Businesses in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Pinellas County

Under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, a corporation or partnership can seek debt relief while it reorganizes. A reorganization plan is usually proposed by the Chapter 11 debtor to the court which allows the business to stay afloat while creditors are paid over time. Business people and individuals can also seek bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 though it is commonly used for corporate entities.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Process

Looking for an attorney for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case in St. Petersburg? If your business can no longer pay its debts or creditors, the business or the creditors can file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition with the court. Chapter 11 provides many of the same protections and relief as other types of bankruptcy including an automatic stay which prohibits creditors, collection agencies, and lawsuits seeking collection on debts owed by the business.

Under Chapter 11, the trustee who is generally the debtor-in-possession operates the business while restructuring it. Generally, a reorganization plan is submitted by the Chapter 11 debtor for the reorganization of the business which must be approved by the court. The plan will delineate how debts will be repaid and how the business will operate during the duration of the plan.
