ABI Guide to Cross-border Insolvency in the United States Price: $ 45.00
This Guide is a must-read for any practitioner involved in international insolvency issues. The authors address the history of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-border Insolvency, which the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law adopted in 1997 after five years of meetings and discussion. Thirteen states have now adopted this law, which includes the United States’ adoption of chapter 15 as part of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. The authors discuss chapter 15 and its provisions in detail, providing helpful insight to the practitioner. In addition, the authors discuss the U.S.’s international insolvency law before its adoption of chapter 15, and there is an extensive discussion of repealed section 304 of the Bankruptcy Code, how it worked in practice and how chapter 15 is fundamentally different. The book also includes a comprehensive chart describing the treatment of cross-border insolvencies by each of almost 40 countries. For those involved in the evolving new world of chapter 15 law, this publication provides the necessary overview to understanding the law in practice. Softbound, 92 pages.

Advanced Fraudulent Transfers: A Litigation Guide
Fraudulent conveyance laws have been in place for many years to protect the rights of creditors, but recent years have shone a greater spotlight on fraudulent transfer litigation, particularly in regards to leveraged buyouts. Written by an active participant in major fraudulent conveyance litigation, Advanced Fraudulent Transfers: A Litigation Guide provides insight into the differences between constructive and intentional fraud claims, how the elements of the claims can be proved, and the defenses that are typically raised. Also discussed are some of the modern issues arising in failed leveraged transactions. The book analyzes such recent cases as Tribune, Lyondell, SemGroup and Tronox, and explores the future of bankruptcy court adjudication of fraudulent conveyance litigation in light of Stern v. Marshall. Advanced Fraudulent Transfers is an indispensable guide for legal and financial professionals who find themselves dealing with the structuring of leveraged deals - as well as the fallout when those businesses fail.
