Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code offers business debtors, and certain individual debtors, the opportunity to restructure their finances, reduce their obligations, and modify terms of payment. For businesses owned by a corporation, limited liability company, or partnership, Chapter 11 is the only bankruptcy option that allows for restructuring and continued operation of a business as a going concern.
