Providing Experienced Representation In Bankruptcy Matters

According to American Bankruptcy Institute statistics, the past 10 years have seen an average of 38,000 business bankruptcy filings per year. And in today’s economy, it only seems logical that this number is heading in one troubling direction: up.

Lashly & Baer, P.C., provides sound legal services regarding bankruptcy to national, regional and local commercial lenders, creditors committees and asset purchasers. Our experience covers inventory financing, working capital credit lines and asset-based loan transactions. Our attorneys have substantial experience in these matters, including attorney Daniel D. Doyle.

It’s also important to note that in 2005 the Bankruptcy Code was substantially changed. This was due to the enactment of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act. But it’s reassuring to know that our attorneys have the experience, skill and up-to-date knowledge to provide you with the highest level of representation.
