Bankruptcies Rising in Consumer Products Sector

Tom Biron recently spoke with the Philadelphia Inquirer concerning the up-tick in bankruptcy filings and the credit market.  Law firms are now increasing their personnel to accommodate the load.

Mr. Biron said that Blank Rome began noticing an increase in bankruptcy filings in 2006, most often with companies providing consumer products, and that the work has increased since then.

Mr. Biron said the credit crunch was even hammering firms once they had filed for bankruptcy, because they often could not get the credit they needed to make it through the reorganization.
