They might be moderately aware of the possibility that Chapter 11 bankruptcy might help them, but, for whatever reason, are reluctant to consider the process. For many, this might be a mistake. Debt restructuring, debt reorganization and the managing of business debt are just some of the potential benefits of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. If there is still a fear of this process, considering examples of other businesses that have used it could help assuage that worry.
