Menlo Park, CA — Lex Machina, a LexisNexis company, today releases its Bankruptcy Report. The report examines trends in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, which include the entire dockets in any bankruptcy proceeding filed in a United States Bankruptcy Court under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. It focuses on the five-year period from 2017 to 2021 and surveys emerging trends in case filings, courts, judges, law firms, parties, and timing metrics. The report often focuses on different sets of data, filtering cases in order to provide analytics on business debtors, individual debtors, involuntary petitions, confirmed plans, and bankruptcy cases sorted by total liabilities.
“This was a fascinating report to produce, both because it showcases data and analytics from our newest court system, but also because the analytics revealed some powerful insights and intriguing trends,” said Laura Hopkins, Lex Machina's bankruptcy legal data expert and editor of the report. "Not only could we see the quantifiable effect the pandemic and its aftermath had on Chapter 11 proceedings, but our filters also highlighted the different effects the pandemic had on bankruptcy filings depending on the type of debtor and total amount of liabilities."
Findings from the report include:
