Research Handbook on Corporate Bankruptcy Law

Research Handbooks in Corporate Law and Governance series

Edited by Barry E. Adler, New York University, School of Law, US

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.

‘Readable and guiding contributions concerning fundamental issues of large group corporate bankruptcies. In Europe, the book will prove equally valuable to lawmakers and scholars with an affection for law and economics policy analysis of the theme.’
– Bob Wessels, Professor Emeritus of International Insolvency Law, Leiden University, the Netherlands and Expert Advisor on Insolvency and Restructuring Law of the European Commission
