As a result, they may end up in need of protections in order to keep their doors open, and many companies may choose to utilize Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Louisiana residents may be interested in this type of situation taking place with a company in another state. Reports indicated that the aerospace company is currently involved in a contract dispute and has had to suspend production on certain components that they manufacture due to the dispute. It was unclear whether this issue has caused a considerable amount of financial setbacks for the company or if it has others reasons for wanting to protect business operations as the company contends with the problem.
Nonetheless, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to allow the business to continue on with its operations. The CEO for the company expressed confidence that the bankruptcy process will be successful. It was noted that foreign subsidiaries and affiliates of the company had not taken the step of filing for bankruptcy.

Fortunately, there are options like Chapter 11 bankruptcy to explore that could help parties better understand how to potentially get their business back on track as needed. If Louisiana business owners are having to contend with financial hardships and are considering restructuring, they may wish to consult with knowledgeable attorneys about their protection options.
