Business Bankruptcy Counsel for Creditors and Debtors

Business bankruptcies are notoriously complex. They involve multiple parties and many moving pieces. Hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars are often at stake. But we don’t just see businesses, we see people and families. There is a reason that over 90% of our clients were referred to us by other lawyers, clients, or persons familiar with us in addition to our expertise. It is because we genuine care about our clients.

Kent and Caleb represent debtors and creditors in business bankruptcy. They work with clients ranging from small independent family-owned businesses, to corporate and family-owned farming operations, to large, established businesses. In addition, we represent several community banks and are a part of finding reasonable commercial solutions to the challenges faced by these banks and their customers.

He is a board-certified specialist in bankruptcy law through The American Board of Certification and the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization. Based in Eunice, he is admitted to practice in bankruptcy courts across Louisiana as well as in Texas, California, Tennessee and Delaware.

Deciding Whether Bankruptcy is the Best Path Forward

The federal Bankruptcy Code exists to give businesses and individuals the tools they need to address debt. As the Supreme Court of the United States has stated, bankruptcy is for the honest but unfortunate debtor.

While no bankruptcy option is truly simple, some are less complex than others, much like building a house. Some are small and relatively easily built while others are in construction for years. Some businesses and people do not need relief under the more complex parts of the Bankruptcy Code. Our team helps you decide what the best path forward is for you or your business.

Types Of Bankruptcy Tools For Businesses And Creditors

Our lawyers are well versed in all types of bankruptcy, including:

  • Chapter 11: More complex businesses can utilize this option to reorganize significant debt.
  • Chapter 11, subchapter V: This is also an avenue for reorganization, and it offers a faster resolution than Chapter 11.
  • Chapter 7 for businesses: For some businesses, liquidation makes more sense than reorganization.

They also represent individual debtors in bankruptcy cases.
