Chapter 11 – Creditor Representation

What happens when you receive a notice that one of your customers has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy? What happens when you receive a letter demanding payment from a bankrupt customer that owes you money? When you receive a Notice of a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Proceeding or a demand for payment, it is important to act promptly and appropriately to preserve your right to payment, or to protect yourself or your company against recovery proceedings in the Bankruptcy Court. Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is a reorganization proceeding in the Bankruptcy Court which usually is done for companies, but can also apply to individuals who are above the debt limits for Chapter 13.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases can interrupt business operations for creditors, even when you have not done anything outside the ordinary course of your own business operations. The Bankruptcy Code requires the Chapter 11 Debtor to pursue many causes of action against creditors. As a creditor, you may have valid defenses to the claims asserted by the Chapter 11 Debtor. As a creditor in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, it is important to maximize the amount of recovery against the debtor, while also minimizing the amount that you may be required to pay into the Chapter 11 bankruptcy estate.
