Does Your Business Need Debt Relief?
Kansas City Business Bankruptcy Attorney Give Options for the Best Solution
The Sader Law Firm takes pride in helping businesses find remedies needed to end collection calls, reduce debt and to move past financial difficulties. Unlike other firms that practice bankruptcy law in addition to other legal areas, our main priority is dealing with individual and business bankruptcy. We believe that if you can go to the same law office for a traffic ticket as you would a bankruptcy filing, then your case is not getting the attention it deserves.
If your business is facing overwhelming debt and you want to know what steps to take to keep open or shut the doors, then we can discuss your best strategy. Our firm offers business owners many options. This may include Chapter 11 bankruptcy to continue operations, Chapter 7 bankruptcy to wind down or out-of-court alternatives such as a workout.

- Business workouts – provides a method of reorganizing debt without filing bankruptcy

What Can I Do if a Customer Who Owes My Business Money Filed for Bankruptcy?
Our lawyers also work with many businesses that are creditors in bankruptcy cases. We help them to maximize their chances of recovering property or getting claims paid from debtors. If a customer files bankruptcy and owes your business money, then your business becomes a creditor in the customer’s bankruptcy. Improperly handling these creditor issues can be costly to any business and may also push your business into its own financial mess.
Several issues can arise for creditors in bankruptcy, such as:
- Needing to file a proper proof of claim
- Resolving the bankruptcy trustee’s objections to your proof of claim
- Objecting to a discharge of certain debts
- Protecting your business’ rights to continued payments, assets and collateral
- Monitoring the status of any contracts or leases your business had with the debtor
- Defending against preference and fraudulent transfer lawsuits filed by the bankruptcy trustee
- Objecting to a Chapter 11 plan that does not treat the creditors equitably and according to the Bankruptcy Code
