Every step in the business bankruptcy litigation process is covered in Wolters Kluwer's Bankruptcy Litigation Manual, from the drafting of the first pleadings through the appellate process. By making the Bankruptcy Litigation Manual a part of your working library, you not only get detailed coverage of virtually all the topics and issues you must consider in any bankruptcy case, you also get field-tested answers to questions you confront every day, such as:

  • How to stay continuing litigation against a corporate debtor’s non-debtor officers?
  • What are the limits on suing a bankruptcy trustee?
  • Is the Deprizio Doctrine still alive?
  • Does an individual debtor have an absolute right to convert a case from Chapter 7 to Chapter 13?
  • What prohibitions exist on cross-collateralization in financing disputes?
  • Are option contracts “executory” for bankruptcy purposes?
  • When, and under what circumstances, may a bankruptcy court enjoin an administrative proceeding against a Chapter 11 debtor?
  • What are the current standards for administrative priority claims?
  • When must a creditor assert its setoff rights?
  • When can a remand order issued by a district court be reviewed by a court of appeals?
  • What are the limits on challenging pre-bankruptcy real property mortgage foreclosures as fraudulent transfers?
  • Can an unsecured lender recover contract-based legal fees incurred in post- bankruptcy litigation on issues of bankruptcy law?
  • Is there a uniform federal limitation on perfecting security interests that primes a longer applicable state law period, thus subjecting lenders to a preference attack?
  • Do prior bankruptcy court orders bar a plaintiff’s later state court suit and warrant removal of the action in federal court?
