Atlanta Bankruptcy Attorney
Our Atlanta bankruptcy attorneys bring decades of experience to complex bankruptcy cases. We represent individuals and businesses, creditors and debtors, in all phases of the bankruptcy process, from planning and reviewing alternatives to litigating adversary proceedings. Our services are available to clients nationally, regionally, and throughout the state of Georgia.
Our bankruptcy lawyers have served as Trustees and as counsel for trustees, debtors, creditors’ committees, and creditors in several of the largest cases in the state of Georgia and the Southeast, involving both public and private companies. In today’s difficult economic climate, bankruptcy is not always the appropriate choice for a troubled business or financially strapped individual. As a result, we navigate clients through informal workouts and non-bankruptcy solutions to their problems, as well as through the bankruptcy process itself.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
Chapter 11 is designed to help businesses reorganize in the face of overwhelming debt, potentially allowing the business to remain open despite financial challenges. Business reorganization is an intricate process, which may include closing branches or otherwise changing the direction of the business, as well as dealing with a diverse array of creditors. Our reputation in the area of business law flows into our Chapter 11 practice. Our bankruptcy lawyers specialize in Chapter 11 cases for small to medium-sized businesses and cases involving individuals with complex financial problems and debt. We have represented dozens of Chapter 11 debtors, other fiduciaries or creditors in Chapter 11 cases throughout the United States.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7, often referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, may be an option for businesses in certain situations. More often than not, it is used by individual debtors to completely walk away from their debts, but is subject to careful restrictions and qualifications. In this area, our Atlanta bankruptcy lawyers have a strong background representing both debtors and creditors, and protecting their rights and interests throughout the liquidation process.
