“In bankruptcy procedures we protect the rights of debtors and we also provide consulting for bankruptcy commissioner.”
In the course of business activities for various reasons one may face financial difficulties. A company may have debt to creditors in an amount exceeding its assets. There are also cases, where as a result of default by the opposite party on its obligations, accounts receivable increase and the company loses the opportunity to use the funds that it was previously counted in.
