Experience Based Expertise

Our Chapter 11 Casework Experience

The founder of Phase Eleven dedicated over eleven years to chapter 11 case work at two of the country's largest law firm restructuring practice groups before starting Phase Eleven Consultants out of a pressing need for comprehensive case administration services to chapter 11 cases.

The founder's work presented a wealth of challenges in every facet of a chapter 11 case, from pre-petition case preparation to post petition case administration and through post confirmation estate administration to case closure.  

This experience offered abundant opportunities to work with a wide range of companies and industries that sought restructuring relief through a variety of chapter 11 case types, from traditional to prearranged to prepackaged and liquidating.

Tested and Trusted

The founder's efforts have led to numerous accolades, outstanding reviews, promotion and recommendation.  These efforts also led to the development of finely tuned methods,  processes, procedures, quality, standards, technology and training for achieving administrative excellence during a chapter 11 case.  Phase Eleven Consultants continues this work as a premier administrative services provider for chapter 11 companies.  Our team stands ready to apply the sum of these experiences to every assignment by providing comprehensive administrative services to every case.
