LLC or S-Corp?
Disputes often arise in the bankruptcy setting: a debt was acquired by fraud and is not dischargeable; a creditor could try to collect a debt after the bankruptcy case is finished; or, a trustee may try to recover a piece of property that the debtor is hiding. Disputes that arise in a bankruptcy may require a separate lawsuit within the case, called an adversary proceeding.
An adversary proceeding in bankruptcy is a separate lawsuit filed within the bankruptcy case. Like most lawsuits, it starts when someone (a creditor, the bankruptcy trustee, or you) files a complaint. Many bankruptcies go through to completion and discharge without any adversary proceedings. But not so in others.
Having an attorney that is not experienced with the intricacies of bankruptcy and the rules of bankruptcy procedure can have serious consequences on a debtor's ability to obtain a discharge, and on a creditor's ability to collect a debt. Our attorneys have been representing both debtors and creditors before the United States Bankruptcy Court, since 2001. If you are a creditor that has received a notice of bankruptcy, or if you have received a demand letter from a bankruptcy trustee, you have a short period of time to act.
