Orland Park, Illinois Business Bankruptcy Attorney

Skilled Legal Representation for Businesses with IRS Issues in Tinley Park, Oak Lawn and Cook County

The economic climate of recent years has led many small businesses to encounter financial difficulty. Just as with individuals, there are several solutions available to handle business debt problems. However, when a business falls behind on bills, the situation can become far more complicated, often involving more than just debts owed to banks and employees, but taxes due to the IRS as well. If you own a small business and face unmanageable debt, you need skilled financial and legal counsel to help your business get back on its feet.

Since 1996, the Law Offices of Eric Zelazny have been helping businesses, from sole proprietors to those owing up to $10 million in debt, with their unique financial issues. Attorney Eric Zelazny is a lawyer and CPA with vast experience handling even the most complicated financial issues for small businesses. Mr. Zelazny has lectured often on these topics and has been called upon several times by the courts to testify on financial matters. He takes on even the most difficult cases and delivers highly personalized service, working with each client to craft a solution tailored to meet their needs.

Our small business bankruptcy attorneys deliver a wide range of services to help businesses recover from their financial difficulties. These include:

  • Chapter 7 Debt Liquidation: Entrepreneurs that have a sole proprietorship may be able to file a personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy to liquidate their debts and continue business operations. However, when a partnership, LLC or corporation files for Chapter 7, the business must cease operations and the assets are liquidated to cover as much debt as possible. This might be the right option if you intend to close the business. However, if you want to keep the business running, a better option may be Chapter 11.
  • Chapter 11 Business Reorganization: Similar to a personal Chapter 13 bankruptcy for individuals, Chapter 11 provides protection from creditor collection activity while the business implements a debt repayment plan approved by the court. The business may continue to operate and earn revenue while going through Chapter 11.
  • Debt Settlements: There are times when it is better to settle your business debts directly with your creditors rather than go through the bankruptcy courts. If this is your best option, we can negotiate a manageable debt repayment plan that will put your business on the road to financial solvency.
  • Business IRS Issues: When businesses face financial trouble, they often end up owing back taxes as well. Debts to the IRS and Illinois Department of Revenue are often the most difficult to settle. We put our two decades of financial and legal experience to work to negotiate with these agencies toward reaching the most favorable settlements possible for our clients.
