Creditors' Rights in Chapter 11 Cases provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on best practices for advising secured and unsecured creditors during insolvency proceedings. Featuring partners from some of the nation's leading law firms, this book guides the reader through the recent trends and legislative developments impacting creditors, debtors, and the attorneys who represent them. These top lawyers analyze the issues that impact creditors' rights, including discussion of the general downward trend in Chapter 11 filings and reasons therefor, the effect of "no-action clauses" and their potentially inequitable consequences for creditors, and the circumstances under which unsecured creditors might initiate the taking of evidence to effectively litigate their claims. Additionally, these authors give tips on the role of the creditors' committee in Chapter 11 cases and describe the basic considerations involved in defending against preference claims made by a company's vendors in bankruptcy. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts on the keys to success within this complex field.
Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business and legal intelligence from leading C-Level executives and lawyers.
