Corporate bankruptcies have evolved over the years as more distressed companies are using less of their array of weapons under bankruptcy to resuscitate themselves. Experts say the result is fewer bankruptcies that last three-to-four years and more distressed companies looking at other ways outside of bankruptcy to fix themselves.

We'll also take a look at some of the industries that may be more susceptible to bankruptcies in 2012.
