The Firm also has outstanding litigation ability, corporate drafting experience, and solid business sense.  Unlike many other bankruptcy practices, we do not represent major financial institutions.

Practice Areas

Chapter 11

Business reorganization is never easy, but the experienced team at Mercho Caughey can make it easier for your business to submit a repayment plan to the court and demonstrate how continued operations can get your business – and your life – back on track.  Chapter 11 also gives the business owner flexibility in repaying secured creditors for equipment loans, repaying the government for back taxes owed, and renegotiating or cancelling a burdensome lease.

Real Estate Leases

When faced with insolvency and/or foreclosure, commercial real estate (CRE) owners may seek Chapter 11 protection.  The reorganization of a CRE property may be complicated by high loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, insufficient cash flow, and the personal bankruptcy of the persons providing loan guarantees for the CRE projects, creating a challenging situation.

Mercho Caughey can help!  We are highly experienced in commercial real estate matters and we can help you navigate the complicated areas of Chapter 11 in dealing with your commercial properties.
