Pong and Centipede creators file for bankruptcy

a gavel over a pile of banknotes

If you are a fan of Atari, you may want to break out the tissue box for the tears you are about to shed. It appears that the tough economic times have hit the creators of Pong hard and they are having trouble recovering. On a good note, they are learning to adapt.

The video game innovator recently filed for business bankruptcy as they plan to sell or restructure most of their assets while seeking other financing. With a timetable of three to four months in which they are planning on carrying out their business plan for getting out of the red, they are working hard at protecting the company and its shareholders while seeking to maximize their returns. The choice to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy was seen as the “most strategic option” for the company as they modify the structure of the company to find new channels of income as they tackle the mobile market.

While Atari chose to file for the more complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to its large size, it can often times be more beneficial for small businesses and high income earners to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Many individuals assume that because they are high income earners they are not eligible for Chapter 7. That simply is not true. Likewise, there is not only one option for businesses; Chapter 7 may be applied in some instances rather than Chapter 11.

To find out which type of bankruptcy may be most strategic for you to choose, please contact a bankruptcy attorney who is knowledgeable about the various options available to you. Their skills and proficiency in the law will help in deftly guiding you through this difficult and complex time in your life.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
