Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Lawyer Helping Tennessee Residents

If your business can no longer pay its creditors, the business or creditors may file for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition with a Tennessee Court. Under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, a corporation or partnership can seek debt relief during reorganization. Companies often choose to file for Chapter 11 because its long-term revenues will be higher than the liquidation value of the assets. This way, creditors can receive more money if they allow the debtor business to reorganize and work out a repayment plan. A reorganization plan is usually proposed by the Chapter 11 debtor to the court and allows the business to stay afloat while creditors are payed over time.
