Much attorneys Jonathan Friedland, Rob Glantz, Hajar Jouglaf, and Jeff Schwartz contributed to two restructuring and insolvency treatises published by Thomson Reuters and Westlaw. Titled Commercial Bankruptcy Litigation and Strategic Alternatives For And Against Distressed Businesses, each of these two-volume treatises were released on February 1.
Friedland, as principal author and editor-in-chief for both publications, leads an annual collaboration among nearly 150 corporate restructuring attorneys and turnaround professionals that results in the books.
Glantz and Jouglaf serve as executive editors of Strategic Alternatives For And Against Distressed Businesses. First published in 2012, Strategic Alternatives For And Against Distressed Businesses is widely considered a hallmark practical guide on non-bankruptcy alternatives. The treatise distills the combined experience of legal scholars into a comprehensive practice manual that offers businesspeople and their advisors, among others, state-by-state comparisons of assignments for the benefit of creditors (ABCs) and state court receiverships. Additionally, it covers other types of legal tools available to deal with the financial distress of a U.S. business.
Schwartz is a managing editor of Commercial Bankruptcy Litigation. Weighing in at nearly 2,000 pages, Commercial Bankruptcy Litigation contains insight covering general Chapter 11 bankruptcy and procedure. The treatise was created to provide guidance to commercial litigators who, while not experts in bankruptcy, find themselves in bankruptcy court. Business owners, directors, and officers also appreciate the treatise’s plain English language and often use it to understand the proceedings in their own companies' Chapter 11 cases.
