Arcapita Bank BSC files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Many people in New Jersey are aware that as the economy has declined in recent years, the bankruptcy-filing rate has increased. Businesses have by no means been immune to the economic troubles of the Great Recession and business bankruptcy filings are more common now than they were in the past.

Commercial bankruptcy a consideration for some churches

As the Great Recession has continued to affect people and businesses in New Jersey and elsewhere, foreclosures are increasing in not only personal residences, but also for commercial property as well.

Chapter 11 filed by New Jersey voice and data services provider

The recession that began in 2008 continues to claim business victims in Camden and throughout New Jersey.

Much like Chapter 13 for individuals, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a business to submit a proposed plan to reorganize its entity and create a payment plan. If approved, the result can be a company that emerges from bankruptcy leaner and more competitive.
