(Chapter 11 Planning and Exit Strategies)

Often the uniformed business owner believes that filing a bankruptcy petition is the only way out of an unpayable debt. The fact is, however, very few businesses survive a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.  Therefore, Bankruptcy is not a good option.

AMA can assist you in restructuring loan commitments, discount vendor debts, create a work-out plan, plus a host of other options that give you a better result than a bankruptcy filing. We are your alternative solution to a bankruptcy filing.

As the last and final resort, companies sometimes have no options left. These companies usually have waited far too long for professional turnaround specialists. Both, time and money ran out. Unfortunately, most of those cases have no more time and no more money to survive. Bankruptcy is the last option. But even then, professional help is necessary. The Bankruptcy Law is full of traps for the business owner to cope with. Creditors will tear you apart if you don't have a strong partner on your side. Vendors take advantage of you left and right. Employees leave you and jump the ship. Key executives and managers are searching for a new job. You are left alone, in the cold. We can help. If Chapter 11 is really the only option left, there are steps to take that prepares you personally and your company from stepping into some serious traps.
