Noticing

Overview

Pleadings filed with the federal bankruptcy court must be sent or "served" on certain creditors and groups of people involved with the chapter 11 case.  The purpose of sending creditors the filed pleading is to make them aware or "notify" them of a legal action the debtors are taking in the federal bankruptcy court.  

The process of sending out notices can be complicated by the pleadings, parties and methods involved with the noticing distribution.  Certain individual or groups of creditors will receive only a portion of the pleading, while others will receive the entire pleading.  The methods by which these pleadings will be sent to the individual or groups of creditors may vary by person or by group. 

Attorneys and advisors prepare and file hundreds and thousands of pleadings and compliance materials with the court, on creditors and on the U.S. Trustee during the course of a chapter 11 case.  Almost hourly, documents are prepared, exchanged and reviewed, for that day's court filing and service to creditors using email, fax, messenger, overnight courier and U.S. Mail.

Our administrative noticing team will provide exacting processes, knowledgeable and skilled assistance, targeted information and rapid courteous responses to deliver outstanding noticing results for your next chapter 11 case.  Attached is an informative article on chapter 11 noticing: Chapter 11 Noticing
