Portland Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Attorney
Protecting Financial Futures Across Multnomah County, Oregon, and Washington
If you look at your company's heavy debt burdens and wish you could reorganize them to make repayment easier, Chapter 11 bankruptcy may be a viable option.
What is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?
It is common for chapter 11 debtors to propose a scheme of reorganization in order to maintain their business and pay their creditors over time. Individuals or businesses can also file for bankruptcy relief. Many people think that Chapter 11 is only for businesses, but individuals can also take advantage of this when filing for bankruptcy in Oregon
What Is the Purpose of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?
The primary purpose of Chapter 11 is to protect ongoing operations from collapse. If debt payments or debt collection efforts are causing a business to struggle, that organization may be interested in Chapter 11 bankruptcy. An individual who will lose significant equity to repossession or foreclosure is also a good candidate for this petition.
To begin a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, contact a skilled Portland lawyer from Vanden Bos & Chapman, LLP. We can work with you to help you prepare for filing and help you avoid actions that could damage your case.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Lawyer
There are many bankruptcy attorneys, but not all of them are right for your Chapter 11 filing. A variety of factors go into choosing which qualified lawyer you should choose.
Some things to consider when choosing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy attorney include:
- Experience. You want to choose someone who has developed the skills needed to navigate a variety of cases successfully.
- Respected. Choose an attorney who has an excellent reputation in the community and has earned the respect of other professionals.
- Accessibility. If you cannot reach your lawyer when you need to, they will not be much help. Choose someone you can communicate with easily.
- Able to Handle Complex Cases. Even if your filing is simple, having someone who can handle complexity means that your attorney will be better able to address problems.
Chapter 7 vs Chapter 11
Chapter 7 bankruptcy serves the primary purpose of liquidating the debtor's non-exempt assets, distributing the proceeds to creditors, and discharging prepetition debts to provide a fresh financial start for the debtor. Debtors typically file Chapter 7 cases voluntarily.
In Chapter 11, the debtor usually files a plan of reorganization to be voted on by its various classes of creditors. The main purpose of Chapter 11 bankruptcy is to give business entities and individuals with large amounts of debt an opportunity to reorganize their financial affairs.
