In this Research Handbook, today’s leading experts on the law and economics of corporate bankruptcy address fundamental issues such as the efficiency of bankruptcy, the role and treatment of creditors – particularly secured creditors – in the bankruptcy process, the allocation of going-concern surplus among claimants, the desirability of liquidation in the absence of such surplus, the role of contract in bankruptcy resolution, the role of derivatives in the bankruptcy process, the costs of the bankruptcy system, and the special case of financial institutions, among other topics.

Chapters trace the historical path of both law and policy analysis, with a focus on how the bankruptcy process serves underlying policy objectives. Proposals to reform corporate bankruptcy are presented.

Research Handbook on Corporate Bankruptcy Law includes policy analysis by both lawyers and economists and is thus an invaluable resource to law scholars and students interested in the economic analysis of corporate bankruptcy law, as well as to economics and business scholars and students studying the law of corporate bankruptcy. These pages will prove equally valuable to lawmakers and judges who are interested in policy analysis of corporate bankruptcy.
