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.

Survival Guide for the New Lawyer: What They Didn't Teach
 
Let's face it: Starting your law practice as a new associate can be stressful and overwhelming. Beyond mastering a specialized area of law - one that you might not have even studied in law school - you also have to learn the actual practice of law, as well as navigate the daily pitfalls - social, ethical and legal - inherent in any firm. Although there are publications that can help you understand the nuances of the different areas of law, they might not provide the practical skills that you need to survive, prosper and grow in the profession. Survival Guide for the New Lawyer: What They Didn't Teach You in Law School fills this void by providing real-world guidance on the everyday aspects of practicing law, with a special emphasis on bankruptcy law. Full of anecdotal examples and hard-earned advice, this Guide is perfect for the aspiring lawyer fresh out of law school, or for any firm that wants to give its associates a leg up on the competition.
