Bankruptcy

You can be involved in a bankruptcy in two ways: the bankruptcy of your clients and debtors or of your own company. If one of your debtors has declared bankruptcy, you can limit the negative consequences by arranging your affairs in advance, drawing up good general conditions and ensuring the prompt collection of debts, provisos of ownership, rights of pledge or other securities.

Limit the damage from bankruptcy

This way you can limit the damage you suffer if something goes wrong. It’s also important to act quickly after your debtor has declared bankruptcy. Actions may include appealing to a right of retention or levying execution against your right of pledge. If there’s a risk of bankruptcy in your own company, you can prevent or limit the consequences by restructuring, concluding an agreement with your creditors, refinancing or finding other solutions.
