There are some moments in which a company, for various reasons, is incapable of regularly fulfilling with their obligations, while, at the same time, generating a growing problem.
The Law states that in these situations it is necessary to declare a state of bankruptcy to manage an orderly way out of the problem and ensure the future operation of the company, or if it were impossible to establish any means with which the damages can be reduced to a minimum.
Not taking action at the right time can not only lead to increasingly bigger damage, but it can also lead to potential liability for those in charge of the company if the state of bankruptcy is not requested within the deadline stated by the Law.
According to our experience, the sooner these control measures take place, the lesser the damage suffered to third parties, the company, the employees, the partners, and those responsible.
The state of bankruptcy does not necessarily signify the end of a company, it should be a new beginning. There have been many and great companies who have used this insolvency as a means to fix its situation and grow even more.
Having said that, the subject is complex and requires the intervention of experts who truly know how to face these situations.
There are various circumstances in which a state of bankruptcy could or should be requested, but, in general terms, they can be summarized in the following groups:
Those responsible for the company have an obligation to request the state of bankruptcy and to present it before the Court as soon as one of these situations occurs.
If it is not requested in due form and by the deadline stated by Law, this could result in criminal responsibility and it could lead to them having to pay the debts of the company with their own personal assets.
