Lawyers to Pursue a Workout Plan with Creditors
By having Los Angeles business bankruptcy attorneys negotiate a workout plan with your creditors, we can help you continue operating your company without bankruptcy court supervision. Our lawyers have helped innumerable business owners through this process. Not only can we help you through this process, we can also help you ask questions that will lead to long-term health of your finances.
- Is an alternative repayment plan possible?
- Do you need an infusion of capital?
- Should you seek replacement financing?
- What costs should be cut to remain solvent?
Once we have determined that your business is sustainable, a restructuring plan should be developed before any attempt to negotiate with creditors. This plan may include historical financials and future projections for cash flow, P&L and the balance sheet. Having this information allows you and your creditors to make an informed decision about a potential workout plan.
Negotiating a workout plan and restructuring debt is best left to a professional who can remain a neutral third party in the face of what may be disgruntled creditors. By retaining an experienced attorney, you send a message to creditors that bankruptcy is a possibility. For some creditors, this information may spur them to give your workout plan serious consideration.
The process of producing a restructuring plan and presenting it to creditors can be legally intricate and time-consuming if you are unfamiliar with it. Because the success of any workout plan depends on each creditor’s agreement, careful consultation coupled with financial creativity can prevent holdouts. In these cases, we know how to get results.
If all avenues of restructuring have been explored and a liquidation of your business still becomes necessary, an alternative to filing for bankruptcy protection is an assignment for benefit of creditors. This is overseen by the state courts. If your business wants to sell its assets but the sale price is not sufficient to repay your debts, this may be an attractive option. Selling the assets through an assignment for benefit of creditors may present a more efficient alternative to selling the assets in a bankruptcy case. In this process, an independent assignee is selected and acts as a fiduciary to the creditors. The assignee is then responsible for liquidating the business assets at maximum value.
Our business bankruptcy attorneys will never suggest bankruptcy unless it is the best option for your situation. Call us to discuss your many options before deciding on bankruptcy.
