Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy Law Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Tampa Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Attorneys


The primary use of a chapter 11 bankruptcy is to allow a business to keep its doors open and continue to operate while reorganizing its debt. A chapter 11 bankruptcy can also be used for individuals with too much debt to file a chapter 13 bankruptcy.

A chapter 11 business reorganization bankruptcy and chapter 13 bankruptcy both have a repayment plan filed with the court. The main difference between a chapter 11 bankruptcy and a chapter 13 bankruptcy is that with a chapter 11, the creditors can vote for or against your debt repayment plan. This means that negotiation is critical in a chapter 11 bankruptcy.

At Cohen & DePaul we have represented a great many clients in bankruptcy proceedings and have negotiated with numerous creditors during chapter 11 bankruptcy negotiations.

There are clear benefits to filing a chapter 11 bankruptcy:

  • You can keep your business operating
  • You may be able to modify debts by reducing balances or changing terms
  • You may keep or reject contracts and leases without penalty
  • You may surrender some property secured by debt
  • Any other lawsuits against your business come to a halt after filing
  • You may be able to acquire additional financing
  • You may be able to force unsecured creditors to take less than 100 percent repayment
