Today’s economic earthquake has triggered a staggering number of bankruptcy filings. In the midst of this turmoil, attorneys involved in bankruptcy proceedings need a firm grasp of the bankruptcy process to advise their clients wisely and devise effective plans to help them get back on their feet.
PLI’s Bankruptcy Deskbook gives you that essential knowledge, illuminating the purpose, features, mechanics, advantages, and drawbacks of Chapters 7, 11, 12 and 13 in the new era of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA).
Bankruptcy Deskbook delivers what you need to know about filing and disclosure standards for Chapter 11 small business debtors; discharge and reorganization rules for Chapter 13 individual debtors; prerequisites to discharge in all of the Operative Chapters; and limits on debtors’ ability to exempt property out of the estate. Bankruptcy Deskbook also offers the latest insight into how the courts are interpreting BAPCPA provisions at a time of extraordinary financial distress.
Updated at least once a year, Bankruptcy Deskbook is an indispensable resource for bankruptcy attorneys and general practitioners involved in bankruptcy proceedings and a useful reference for company executives and individuals filing for bankruptcies.
