Prearranged Chapter 11 Case Overview

As part of our approach to comprehensive services, we custom craft our support solutions based on the chapter 11 case type and company situation in order to provide maximum resources for cost efficiency and effectiveness on each issue. 

  • We appreciate that prearranged cases, a hybrid between prepackaged and traditional chapter 11 cases, prepare solicitation pre-petition but actually execute post petition. 
  • We know that a prearranged case will proceed post petition as an accelerated traditional chapter 11 and triggers the need for post petition case compliance issues, such as schedules and statements preparation and claims processing and objection but on a fast timeframe. 
  • We appreciate that attorneys and advisors will concentrate efforts and resources on simultaneous first day pleading preparation and plan solicitation, but must also prepare for all post petition traditional issues. 

With a prearranged chapter 11 case, we will provide administrative professionals who will simultaneously support case preparation and pre-petition solicitation.  We will also proactively prepare for all immediate post petition bankruptcy code and court ordered compliance activities such as schedules and statements, the 341 meeting, claims and suggestion of bankruptcy.

Phase Eleven's experienced professionals have the knowledge, skills and abilities to reactively respond with proactive work product to traditional chapter 11 cases.
