Former Houston surgeon nixes bankruptcy claim

Posted on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013 at 8:54 pm    

Court-embattled, Houston ex-surgeon Michael Brown retracted his Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing February 24, a month after having made the initial bankruptcy claim.

According to Brown’s attorneys, Brown was led to believe that the reorganization of assets that accompanies a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, made on January 23 in a Miami federal court, would result in a closure of “divorce-related issues” that he was having with his estranged wife, Rachel.

The bankruptcy filing also “endangers the business and leaves it vulnerable,” as a team of doctors and the former president of Brown Medical Center, Inc. are in a legal battle with Brown, Brown’s lawyers added.

A group of doctors accuses Brown of purchasing expensive real estate and two yachts while still owing them significant sums of money.

Facing financial and professional difficulties as a company can put a lot of pressure on you. However, filing for Chapter 11, while perhaps not the best course of action for Brown, may be the best solution for you and your company.
