What Are Your Options When A Customer Files For Bankruptcy?

When a customer that owes substantial monies to your business files for bankruptcy, it is important to fully explore all of your collection options. Your company’s ability to make a substantial recovery typically hinges on two factors. The first factor is whether the debtor filed chapter 11 or chapter 7. The second factor is whether the debt is secured or unsecured. If the debt is unsecured and the debtor filed chapter 7, it may be difficult for your company to make a substantial recovery. However, if the debtor filed chapter 11, or if the debt is secured, your business will have more options. When representing creditors, our firm can:

  • File a proof of claim to protect your company’s rights
  • Represent your interests as a creditor in bankruptcy proceedings
  • Undertake negotiations to get advantageous payment terms
