After Nearly 35 Years in Business, Mortgage Law Firm Butler & Hosch Closes Down
Mortgage banking industry law firm Butler & Hosch, P.A. filed an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors to Florida law firm Michael E. Moecker & Associates, an action analogous to Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Butler & Hosch closed their doors this week and laid off the entire staff. It will not open on Monday.
“It is with great sadness that I report to all of you regarding the difficult financial status of Butler & Hosch and its affiliates (“BH”) which has resulted in the filing of the state court Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors (“ABC”). I have voluntarily stepped down as CEO and Senior Partner of BH. The control of the BH companies has been voluntarily placed in the hands of an experienced third-party fiduciary, Mr. Michael Moecker.”
“How does the filing of these ABC’s cases impact you? Though Mr. Moecker has complete access to our assets, he will not have sufficient cash on hand to fund payroll at the end of this week. Without BH employees and attorneys there is no ongoing operation. BH cannot continue to function. To be clear, while I continue to hold out hope that our existing lender and/or strategic partners may provide an infusion of cash today, without it, BH will have no choice but to close its doors immediately.”
