In the current volatile economy, no business or individual is immune from insolvency or bankruptcy problems. Many business owners find themselves having financial difficulties because of outside business conditions such as an increase in competition or general costs of doing business, financing troubles like loss of capital and the inability to secure new capital, or inside business conditions like management mistakes, fraud, or loss of clients. Whatever the reason, the business attorneys here at Beard St. Clair Gaffney can advise you on your options and the best course of action for your particular situation.
