Workout and Debt Restructuring

Bankruptcy is usually not the best solution for a business’s financial difficulties. Chapter 11 cases can be extremely costly and can take unforeseen turns outside the debtor’s control. Where the number of creditors is few, and particularly where the financial problems are related to a single creditor, such as a bank, finance company or large judgment holder, it is preferable to attempt to work out a financial restructuring outside of the judicial process. The negotiations regarding a debt restructuring take place with a possible bankruptcy always in the background, and the debtor measuring the workout proposals against results that could be achieved through bankruptcy.
