The Second Edition of this one-volume treatise adds much new material, analysis and insight, reflecting the changing focus of bankruptcy law. Bank lending officers and in-house and outside counsel representing lending institutions will benefit considerably from Collier Lending Institutions. It contains almost all they need to know about bankruptcy law in one volume, taking readers step-by-step through the bankruptcy process, from loan inception, loan administration, workouts and all the way to a bankruptcy case. For the Second Edition, Collier Lending Institutions has been substantially reorganized and substantively revised, all in line with the changing focus of bankruptcy law. The publication continues to lead with a practical discussion of what bankruptcy is all about, then moves into specific bankruptcy issues of which a lender must be aware:

  • Bankruptcy considerations and strategies when structuring and documenting lending transactions
  • Workouts and alternatives to bankruptcy
  • Specific bankruptcy provisions that a lender must be familiar with: automatic stay; executory contracts; preferences, setoff and fraudulent transfers
  • Financing the debtor in possession
  • Section 363 sales
  • Chapter 11 plans or reorganization
  • Lender liability

    In addition, the publication contains many helpful checklists and forms that can assist lenders throughout the bankruptcy process.
