Corporate Scorecard 2010

The American Lawyer

The exception was bankruptcy: Forty-two firms with assets of $1 billion or more filed for Chapter 11 protection in 2009, a jump of 40 percent from 2008. Four of 2009’s filings--those of General Motors, Chrysler, CIT, and Thornburg Mortgage--were among the ten largest public company filings ever.
