Protection against creditors

The years 2008 and 2009 have seen some of the largest chapter 11 bankruptcy filings in history.

A chapter 11 bankruptcy filing allows a business to gain protection against creditors while the business raises operating funds. These funds are given a preference over other debts of the business.

Under protection of the automatic stay, the business, called a “debtor in possession,” proposes a reorganization plan and gains the agreement of creditors. Once the plan is confirmed, it is carried out and the business emerges from bankruptcy.
