Bankruptcy

CHAPTER 7, 11, & 13

The Aubrey Thrasher bankruptcy department is ready to handle whatever filing your debtors pursue. We will examine the petitions filed and help you plan accordingly for hearings and prepare pleadings when required. Your collection efforts are not extinguished when a debtor files for bankruptcy, and we pursue aggressive advocacy in the bankruptcy courts nationwide.


PREFERENCE AND FRAUDULENT TRANSFER DEFENSE

Before and after filing for bankruptcy protection, debtors may choose to continue payment to certain preferred creditors, which could be harmful to your position. Debtors may also transfer assets to third parties in an attempt to conceal them from the bankruptcy trustee. Aubrey Thrasher’s attorneys have a record of successfully thwarting such works and protecting your collection rights.


ADVERSARY PROCEEDINGS

In certain bankruptcy cases, issues arise that require a bankruptcy proceeding aside from the bankruptcy case itself. Aubrey Thrasher is very familiar with such adversary proceedings and will file the necessary pleadings on your behalf and attend any and all hearings to defend your position.


ACTIONS TO DENY DISCHARGE

In Chapter 11 bankruptcies, the debtor is seeking discharge of some or all debts after meeting the requirements of a payment plan established by the trustee. Aubrey Thrasher will fight these discharge efforts whenever feasible to maintain your debt relationship and collection rights.
