Bankruptcy & Restructuring

Bankruptcy and restructuring is a highly regulated area of law. Given today’s business environment, companies are often faced with situations in which they must reorganize and restructure their finances in order to survive. In the competitive business market, companies need expert legal advice and analysis of existing regulations, statutes and judicial precedent when making decisions about the future of companies. When companies go bankrupt, there is a lot of information to process and factors to consider, and the Department of Justice oversees the companies dismantling and the distribution of assets to creditors to ensure the law is not violated.  The National Law Review publishes updates on this process and the resulting and relevant litigation.

The National Law Review has this area of law covered with the latest legislation, legal news, and stories, from multinational corporations, international organizations on down to small, local businesses, who need expert legal analysis on bankruptcy processes. Because there are many tax-law implications in this area, it is an area of law which is highly regulated. In addition to the latest news on companies which are filing for bankruptcy or restructuring their organization, the National Law Review details the complexities of filing in bankruptcy court, business reorganization, what companies have to prove when filing for bankruptcy, and different cases which are pending at the federal court level.

The site also covers the latest information and news on creditors’ rights in litigation, their ability to collect, and laws which protect companies filing for bankruptcy, trying to avoid paying debts owed to their creditors. News coverage and stories online include Chapter 11 proceedings, Chapter 13 filing, litigation at the federal level, distressed acquisitions and sales, foreclosures on businesses, workout practices, and liquidations.

Visitors to the site will also read about international cross-border insolvency claims, global restructuring laws, cases involving multinational companies, and international laws which regulate the field of bankruptcy. Among the countries which are covered, outside the US, includes Europe, Asia, and Australia. Visitors to NLR will always find the latest case law, litigation, pending legislation, and stories, in the area of bankruptcy and reorganization law.
