Foley & Lardner LLP is pleased to announce that Charles Tabb, of counsel and University of Illinois College of Law professor, has authored the fourth edition of his treatise, “The Law of Bankruptcy.” The comprehensive, one-volume text provides an exhaustive analysis and discussion of every aspect of bankruptcy law, including an overview of bankruptcy; invoking bankruptcy relief; the automatic stay; jurisdiction and procedure; property of the estate; trustee’s avoiding powers; payment of claims; executory contracts and unexpired leases; exemptions; discharge; reorganization under Chapter 11; debt adjustments under Chapter 13; debt adjustments under Chapter 12; and cross-border cases under Chapter 15.
The treatise is a go-to reference guide for bankruptcy professionals and provides an in depth look at the entire federal bankruptcy code and key bankruptcy cases.
