Newark Small-Business Bankruptcy Lawyers

Bankruptcy can be a very effective way for a small business facing financial difficulties to reorganize. Rather than spelling the end of the business, bankruptcy can allow it to stay afloat. Depending on circumstances and details of the business's organization, one of these types of bankruptcy may be appropriate:

  • Chapter 7 for unincorporated businesses and businesses without much equity
  • Chapter 13 for businesses with equity
  • Chapter 11 for incorporated businesses and limited liability companies (LLCs)

Debt reorganization, a core feature of Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy, can keep creditors at bay while the business gets back on its feet. Chapter 7 bankruptcy can apply to any type of business. In this case, either the corporation or the owner of the business will file Chapter 7. A person can receive discharge of debts, whereas a corporation does not. For business owners who personally guaranteed debts to start or run small businesses, a personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy is sometimes a successful debt relief strategy.
