Private Trustee Locator

Private trustees under chapters 7, 12, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. 101, et seq.) typically administer debtors' estates, subject to supervision by the United States Trustees in their respective judicial districts. (Note that chapter 12 trustees may be either standing trustees appointed to cover a specific judicial district or be appointed on a case-by-case basis in judicial districts where there is no standing chapter 12 trustee.)

Private trustees under subchapter V of chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code perform certain duties in connection with the administration of cases (as provided in the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019), subject to supervision by the United States Trustees in their respective judicial districts. Chapter 11 subchapter V trustees currently are appointed on a case-by-case basis and, in the listings below, are named in each State or judicial district in which they ordinarily would be considered for appointment by the United States Trustees.

Private trustees are not government employees; they are private parties appointed by the United States Trustees.
