Reprint of the third edition. More convenient than the extensive contemporary works of Collier or Remington, Black's handy treatise, which uses the format of a West Hornbook, offers a summary of the law as it stood in the early 1920s. Though its size led some to suspect it was superficial, it was generally well-received and did much to popularize the field. As one reviewer wrote, "[i]t is to be hoped [this book] marks the beginning of a new period in bankruptcy law that will witness its welcoming into the repertoire of the lawyer as one of the regular devices for regulating business relations.": Nathan Isaacs, University of Pennsylvania Law Review 73 (1924-1925) 120.
Tax Planning for Troubled Corporations, by noted tax attorneys Gordon D. Henderson and Stuart J. Goldring, clearly outlines the steps involved in corporate bankruptcy proceedings and examines the tax procedural aspects of bankruptcy. This classic treatise provides crystal clear analysis and guidance for any company considering bankruptcy filing and for tax, financial and legal advisors to such companies. It examines the full gamut of tax aspects, consequences and considerations of bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy restructuring of financially troubled businesses -- from the corporation's initial tax payment and reporting obligations through the claims resolution process, to the payment and discharge of tax claims pursuant to a confirmed Chapter 11 plan.
Using a hands-on approach, The ABCs of Debt: A Case Study Approach to Debtor/Creditor Relations and Bankruptcy Law, Fifth Edition bridges the difference between understanding bankruptcy concepts and applying them with confidence. Parsons begins with the premise that the specialized study of bankruptcy requires an adequate foundation in other aspects of debtor/creditor relations. This foundational knowledge is reinforced by realistic, current case studies that introduce, explain, and illustrate bankruptcy law and procedure. Students see how a bankruptcy case unfolds, from the moment a debtor makes contact with a lawyer until the case is closed. That chronological, step-by-step approach is used to study cases filed under Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11. This book aspires not just to teach students ‘‘about’’ bankruptcy, but also to teach them how to ‘‘do’’ bankruptcy. Broad coverage includes bankruptcy law, debt creation, secured transactions, the law of liens, and debt collection. New to the Fifth Edition: Updated to reflect significant court decisions regarding debt collection and bankruptcy including: Czyzewski v. Jevic Holding Corp. which struck down structured settlements regarding a Chapter 11 debtor that conflict with §507 priorities unless affected creditors consent Midland Funding, LLC v. Johnson, U.S. holding that filing of a time barred proof of claim does not amount to a false, deceptive, misleading, unfair, or unconscionable debt collection practice within the meaning of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Lamar, Archer & Cofrin, LLP, v. Appling, holding that a materially false statement in writing about a single asset can be a “statement respecting the debtor’s financial condition,” rendering debt related to the asset nondischargeable under §523(a)(2)(B) Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis holding that private-sector non-union employers can use class action arbitration waiver provisions to bar employees from joining in a class action or collective arbitration to contest alleged wage and hour violation Updated references pertaining to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Department of Education (student loans), payday lending, and car loans Analysis of the causes of bankruptcy for those age 65 and older Demonstration bankruptcies moved to appendices for easy reference Revised case studies comply with the latest amendments to the official bankruptcy forms in effect at the time of publication including the important new Form B113, Chapter 13 Plan approved by the U.S. Judicial Conference in 2017 Professors and students will benefit from: Realistic Case Studies that add a strong skill-building component to any study of bankruptcy law Problem-Hypotheticals in which students apply concepts to realistic situations Learn-by-Doing exercises, examples, and illustrations A sequential organization of bankruptcy topics that mirrors practice Ethical Considerations that highlight relevant ethical or professional challenges presented by the topic under discussion Chapter summaries, review questions, and sample forms View from the Bench case excerpts, accompanied by Applying the Law exercises, that link doctrine to practice Engaging and informative text boxes Key Concepts at the start of each chapter Complete Case Files for both case studies—provided for students on the companion website at WKLegaledu.com/Parsons-Debt5 and referred to throughout the chapters that make up Part B To Learn More (TLM) activities for each chapter—available on the companion website—designed to challenge and enable the student to do further research on issues raised in the text or to consult additional resources for further learning

This is the long-awaited third edition of this highly regarded comparative overview of corporate law. This edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to reflect the profound changes in corporate law and governance practices that have taken place since the previous edition. These include numerous regulatory changes following the financial crisis of 2007-09 and the changing landscape of governance, especially in the US, with the ever more central role of institutional investors as (active) owners of corporations. The geographic scope of the coverage has been broadened to include an important emerging economy, Brazil. In addition, the book now incorporates analysis of the burgeoning use of corporate law to protect the interests of "external constituencies" without any contractual relationship to a company, in an attempt to tackle broader social and economic problems. The authors start from the premise that corporations (or companies) in all jurisdictions share the same key legal attributes: legal personality, limited liability, delegated management, transferable shares, and investor ownership. Businesses using the corporate form give rise to three basic types of agency problems: those between managers and shareholders as a class; controlling shareholders and minority shareholders; and shareholders as a class and other corporate constituencies, such as corporate creditors and employees. After identifying the common set of legal strategies used to address these agency problems and discussing their interaction with enforcement institutions, The Anatomy of Corporate Law illustrates how a number of core jurisdictions around the world deploy such strategies. In so doing, the book highlights the many commonalities across jurisdictions and reflects on the reasons why they may differ on specific issues. The analysis covers the basic governance structure of the corporation, including the powers of the board of directors and the shareholder meeting, both when management and when a dominant shareholder is in control. It then analyses the role of corporate law in shaping labor relationships, protection of external stakeholders, relationships with creditors, related-party transactions, fundamental corporate actions such as mergers and charter amendments, takeovers, and the regulation of capital markets. The Anatomy of Corporate Law has established itself as the leading book in the field of comparative corporate law. Across the world, students and scholars at various stages in their careers, from undergraduate law students to well-established authorities in the field, routinely consult this book as a starting point for their inquiries.
The 4th Edition of THE ENTREPRENEUR'S GUIDE TO BUSINESS LAW takes students through the various stages of starting a business--from start-up and growth to an initial public offering--while highlighting the legal preparations and pitfalls that go along with them.

Appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate coursework, this newly updated edition presents traditional topics, such as the cyclical nature of business, international issues, contract law, and bankruptcy, as well as more current issues like clean energy, e-commerce, and the effects of the recent recession on entrepreneurship.
