Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is oftentimes referred to as "reorganization" bankruptcy. Although Chapter 11 is available to individuals and businesses, it is typically reserved for those with high levels of debt. Two prime examples of large corporations seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection include American International Group (AIG) and Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.
Chapter 11 bankruptcy provides debtors the opportunity to retain assets through the structure of a repayment plan. Once individuals and business entities receive Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection their finances are supervised by the court.
