Sometimes, despite our best efforts to reorganize or restructure a company without resort to formal proceedings, filing a bankruptcy for a company to protect it from its creditors becomes unavoidable. In fact, sometimes filing a chapter 11 reorganization case may be the only viable option left to a company.
A bankruptcy case is like any other legal tool – it is best used only when it will be the most effective way to solve a company’s problems. Like surgery in the medical field, filing a bankruptcy reorganization case is not called for or useful in every case. But when employed judiciously, it is an effective and comprehensive tool to rehabilitate a troubled company. In fact, sometimes just having a viable threat of bankruptcy, like having Sweet DeMarb as the company’s lawyers, can create the leverage for the company necessary to resolve matters out of court.
