Chapter 11 Bankruptcy


Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is generally used by corporations and large businesses who need to restructure their debt to continue their business operations. A trustee is generally not appointed unless the debtor's ability to manage their business is considered ineffectual or dishonest. A plan of reorganization is established and reviewed by a committee of creditors' which can be composed of the top unsecured creditors who are appointed by the by the United States Trustee. This committee will provide oversight for the business and help the business develop a debt reorganization plan which is acceptable to the committee and the business.

If an agreeable plan of reorganization can not be established the business may have the opportunity to confirm the plan despite opposition from the committee, but they must first pass certain statutory tests. The reorganization plan outlines how the businesses debts will be repaid and reorganized to operate a profitable business.
