Bankruptcy filings in the federal courts broke a record high in 2003, according to data released by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. The continued increase in new bankruptcy filings, particularly large corporate bankruptcies, has led to significant litigation and court decisions.
To help legal professionals stay abreast of the latest developments in corporate bankruptcy litigation, West and Andrews Publications recently announced the release of Andrews' Bankruptcy Litigation Reporter.
Legal professionals now have a single resource that covers all aspects of corporate bankruptcy law. This biweekly reporter offers comprehensive coverage of ongoing bankruptcy litigation, including trial court proceedings, appellate briefings, U.S. Supreme Court petitions and insight by practitioners in the field. Andrews' Bankruptcy Litigation Reporter covers a wide range of topics on Chapter 11 proceedings and includes analysis of the most significant caselaw.
Additional topics covered by Bankruptcy Litigation Reporter include: ongoing proceedings of the most contentious reorganizations, avoidance/ preferential transfer disputes, objections to plan confirmations, findings of court-appointed examiners, discovery disputes, and interaction between bankruptcy and other areas of law, including ERISA and securities law.
