The first and only concise introduction to American business insolvency law, this volume provides a succinct overview of American business bankruptcy as it is actually practiced, integrating the law as written and implemented.
American Business Bankruptcy includes coverage of specialized proceedings like brokerage liquidations, pre-packaged chapter 11 cases, and 363 sales. Professor Lubben also reviews the transnational aspects of modern American bankruptcy practice, and explains chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code, which allows for foreign insolvency proceedings to be "recognized" in U.S. courts.
U.S law students and junior attorneys, international insolvency professionals, and non-legal professionals, including bankers and accountants, will appreciate this practical synthesis, which includes citations and guidance for further research.
