Corporate Restructuring and Chapter 11

Restructuring Your Business Back into a Profit Maker

If your business is experiencing financial difficulties, it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. An attorney may be able to negotiate with your creditors and save you the expense of filing for bankruptcy. If that does not work, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection may provide the relief you need to get your business back on its feet.

It is important to consult a lawyer before undergoing this complicated procedure. Located in Bloomington, Illinois, the Law Office of Jonathan A. Backman has over 20 years of experience helping corporations and small businesses restructure themselves. To discuss whether filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy is in your best interest, e-mail their office or call 309-820-7420.

Experience that Matters

Attorney Jonathan Backman spent 11 years handling Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases at large law firms in Chicago before opening his private practice. He has the skill of a large firm and understands how to implement the various tools that may be available to a business that has filed for bankruptcy. Throughout his career, he has helped all sizes of businesses restructure, from mom-and-pop shops to million dollar revenue corporations.

Due to his wealth of knowledge and experience, Mr. Backman understands how the court is likely to respond before you file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. His firm will do everything possible to help you negotiate with creditors, restructure and return you to profitability. This process may take months or up to a year. Attorney Jonathan Backman will handle every aspect of your case.

Representing Creditors and Other Parties

He also represents creditors and all other parties who have a stake in a struggling company's future. You have a stake in the outcome of your debtors business reorganization, and the Law Office of Jonathan A. Backman will make sure your needs are recognized.

Because Mr. Backman occasionally helps individual consumers file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code, we are required to identify the firm as a “debt relief agency.” Debt relief agencies help people with primarily consumer debts file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

Contact the Firm

Contact their office to discuss your case in a frank and open discussion. They return all e-mails and phone calls promptly and are upfront and reasonable about their fees. Mr. Backman's office is conveniently located one block from the Law and Justice Center in downtown Bloomington, Illinois.

Although we mostly provide bankruptcy advice and file larger bankruptcy cases, we also handle some smaller individual bankruptcies. As a result, the Bankruptcy Code requires that we identify ourselves as a "debt relief agency" --- meaning that we assist individuals in seeking relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
