How Our Attorneys Can Help You 

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. We not only can help you through this process but can also help you ask questions that will lead to the long-term health of your finances.

We’ll start by asking the following questions:

  • 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?

Establishing A Workout Plan With Creditors 

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, profit and loss, and the balance sheet. This information allows you and your creditors to decide 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.

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, Weintraub Zolkin Talerico & Selth APC, knows how to get results.

Suppose all avenues of restructuring have been explored and liquidation of your business still becomes necessary. In that case, an alternative to filing for bankruptcy protection is an assignment for the benefit of creditors. The state courts oversee this. If your business wants to sell its assets, but the sale price is insufficient to repay your debts, this may be an attractive option.

Selling the assets through an assignment for the 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.
