Whatever your individual needs are, the Bankruptcy Practice Group is a trusted partner that will see you through the process and help you achieve a discharge of debt and a fresh start.
Businesses and their owners sometimes find themselves faced with mounting debt. No matter the cause, business bankruptcy filings can provide owners with time to restructure debt and focus on future growth. Bankruptcy filing may also provide the mechanism for an orderly liquidation or sale of a business or its assets. We have years of experience representing businesses in Chapter 11 reorganization and Chapter 7 proceedings. The Bankruptcy Practice Group represents debtors, creditors and Trustees in all Chapters for business bankruptcy cases. Our experience in representing business owners and their companies in bankruptcy can help your business survive and thrive for the future.
In Rhode Island, Receivership is an alternative to Federal bankruptcy for distressed businesses and real-estate projects. A Rhode Island Receivership can be an effective tool to help businesses and their owners deal with financial difficulty. Our attorneys have been appointed as Receivers and Special Masters for businesses and have acted as counsel to Receivers and business owners. Because of our experience, we are uniquely positioned to represent business owners, prospective buyers and other stakeholders in Receivership proceedings.
Bankruptcy or Receivership may not always provide the best outcome for an individual or business in a distressed financial situation. We explore all alternatives for each client who needs a financial fresh start. We have years of experience and expertise helping clients with out-of-court negotiation with creditors including secured lenders, mortgage holders, credit card companies and taxing authorities. We take the time to work with each client to understand their financial situation and present realistic and creative solutions tailored for the unique financial needs of each client.
