What is commercial bankruptcy?

Commercial bankruptcy is a legal process available to directors and business owners to put a definitive end to financial difficulties. This solution is considered when debt problems persist and other measures have proven to be ineffective.

By law, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) is the only professional authorized to administer a commercial bankruptcy.

When to consider a company bankruptcy?


Corporate bankruptcy may be considered when the capital to restart a company is lacking, when profit expectations are put into doubt, or when the directors lack the desire to continue their commercial activities. A company in a difficult financial situation can resort to the services of a Ginsberg Gingras Licensed Insolvency Trustee for an orderly resolution.

An insolvent company is a major stress factor for its directors and owners. For some, bankruptcy is the way to put an end to the situation and allow them to rediscover a quality of life without financial worries. In some cases, owners or directors want to avoid commercial bankruptcy at all costs. Regardless of the solution you are looking for, our trustees will guide you through the process of resolving your company’s financial problems. Their goal is to advise you so that you can make the best possible decision under the circumstances.
