Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Offers Protection From Creditors 

Sometimes business owners need to hold creditors at bay while they finish a crucial project, sell a business or reach another business goal. When you file Chapter 11 bankruptcy, your business is protected by the automatic stay, which bars creditors from repossessions and other attempts to collect on debts. This can give your business the time you need. 

For example, a construction company may run debt problems when a project takes longer to complete than anticipated. If a creditor repossesses materials needed to complete the project, the company may lose everything it put into the project. By filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the company can obtain protection from the creditor and gain the time it needs to finish the project. Once the company completes the project, it will have the money it needs to pay its suppliers. 

Because bankruptcy laws are complex and creditors may seek to overcome the automatic stay, it’s important to consult an experienced Chapter 11 lawyer before you file bankruptcy.
