What to know before using Chapter 11 for business bankruptcy


Many Tennessee businesses flourish while others, for some reason, fail to generate enough revenue to survive. When this happens, entrepreneurs can generally choose from three main types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7, 11 and 13. Each has its pros and cons, but many experts believe that Chapter 11 should be a last resort - after other strategies have failed.

One of Cleveland's oldest companies in bankruptcy


According to the government, the sale of the nation's oldest privately owned clothing maker, now bankrupt, may be happening too quickly and may not be in the best interests of the bankrupt company's creditors. The clothing company has been making tailored suits and clothing in Cleveland, Tennessee since 1880. The privately owned company is currently operating under bankruptcy court supervision. The company hopes to emerge from bankruptcy after a proposed $2 million sale to a local Cleveland millionaire who says he wants to rebuild the business and save Cleveland's oldest company.
