Business Bankruptcy And Loan Workouts

Located in Chicago and serving clients throughout Illinois and nationally, Jordan & Zito attorneys have been helping businesses with complex corporate bankruptcy and financial restructuring problems for more than 25 years.

Our clients include owners of closely held businesses and large corporations, as well as the creditors, lenders and financial institutions that serve them.

Working Out Creative Solutions To Help You Find A Path Forward

When a business is in financial distress, the path forward for the owners or the creditors isn't always clear. Is it best to try modifying existing loan agreements and devising debt restructuring strategies? Should the company try to reorganize within a Chapter 11 business bankruptcy? Or should the business close operations and liquidate as part of a Chapter 7 business bankruptcy case?

"We understand the complexities involved in large corporate debt litigation. We have staffed debtor cases involving more than 1,000 creditors, with numerous employees spread out across operations in multiple states. We use the same common sense and strategic thinking to represent plaintiffs and defendants in business bankruptcy and loan workouts." Senior partner Mark Zito

And Offer Services To Help You Regain Your Financial Footing...

Our experience across a broad range of financial and debt relief litigation matters includes:

  • Corporate Chapter 11 bankruptcy: Whether a business needs to cease operations and liquidate as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case or reorganize and restructure in a Chapter 11 business bankruptcy, our attorneys provide a full range of services, from pre-bankruptcy planning through plan confirmation and post-confirmation matters.
  • Chapter 11 business bankruptcy litigation: Disputes within the confines of a bankruptcy case may involve the debtor business, creditors, the trustee or even entities outside the bankruptcy case. Adversary proceedings, motions for relief of automatic stay and motions to assume or reject a contract are some of the most common types of bankruptcy litigation matters. Our clients include business debtors, creditors and lenders.
  • Business loan workouts: When a company encounters a temporary financial setback, it may be best to enter into a loan workout or loan modification agreement that is acceptable to both borrower and lender. As skilled negotiators, our loan modification attorneys are aware of the legal implications of altering agreements, implications that others may not foresee.
  • Corporate debt restructuring and financial recovery: A company that has suffered a financial setback but wishes to continue as a going concern may need to restructure its operations. Whether the reorganization takes place within a Chapter 11 business bankruptcy case or is handled through an out-of-court arrangement, our lawyers have the financial restructuring experience needed to help a company, creditor or lender navigate the process.
