Business Survival VS. Pandemic Destruction:
Bankruptcy in Nevada
Originally Published: https://www.nevadabusiness.com/2021/04/business-survival-vs-pandemic-destruction/
By Chris Sieroty
For Nevada businesses struggling to survive during the coronavirus pandemic, bankruptcy may end up being the only way out. While overall filings nationally were up 20 percent last year, according to bankruptcy court records, the number of businesses in the state that filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which involves reorganizing and remaining in operation, have remained relatively stable. And according to some experts, it either won’t be too long before more firms seek relief or will come out the other end of the pandemic in a position to pick up where they left off before the crisis devastated the Nevada economy last year.
“There’s certainly some distinctions of what’s happening nationally and what’s happening in Nevada,” said Tom Fell, a bankruptcy attorney with Fennemore Craig.
Fell said he wasn’t surprised by the double-digit gains nationally in bankruptcy filings, but he was surprised by the numbers reported so far this year by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada.
