Considering Business Bankruptcy?

You have options. Turn to our lawyers for the guidance you need on Chapter 11 bankruptcy or Subchapter 5 – a new type of bankruptcy that is more streamlined and affordable for small businesses.

Finding The Right Path Forward For Your Business

Running a successful business can be challenging in the best of times. For small businesses like restaurants and retailers, economic hardship makes it even more difficult to stay afloat.
The decision to close your doors isn’t easy. Nor is the decision to pursue bankruptcy – or to wade through the weighty concerns you may be facing. At the Schwartz Law Firm, we can help you find the right path forward, whether that means Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Subchapter 5 bankruptcy or outside-the-box options for avoiding bankruptcy altogether.

Subchapter 5 Bankruptcy

The most well-known type of business bankruptcy – Chapter 11 – can be lengthy, complicated and expensive. It’s geared more toward corporations and businesses with large, complex debts.
A recent change to federal bankruptcy law created Subchapter 5 bankruptcy, a streamlined alternative for small businesses. It’s simpler and more cost-effective than Chapter 11.
There is a debt limit for businesses to qualify, however. Under the original law, that limit was $2.725 million. The CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) has temporarily raised that limit to $7.5 million, allowing more businesses to take advantage of this favorable bankruptcy option.
Time is limited to qualify for Subchapter 5 bankruptcy under the higher debt limit. Don’t wait to speak with a lawyer about this potential option.
