My company is a creditor in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.In addition to claims that my company has against the debtor, myself personally also has a claim to file related to myself being at least a 50% owner in a patent application with the debtor from back in 2012. I noticed that the debtor did not list this specific patent application as an asset on his final schedule that he submitted and there is also no mention of him transferring his partial ownership to any of the 'sham' LLCs he has been using...Am I precluded from filing a personal proof of claim form since my company is already listed as a creditor?

Hi,I filed Ch 13 two years ago and am making payments with a plan towards a house. I received a report of receipts and disbursements from the trustee for the last year.
