Examiners in Bankruptcy Cases: A Guide for Examiners, Courts and Practitioners

Publication Source: Thomson Reuters Westlaw

Thomas R. Slome, Chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization Practice and Co-Chair of the Corporate Finance practice, and Edward J. LoBello, Member of the firm and part of the Bankruptcy & Business Reorganization, Corporate Finance and Litigation & Dispute Resolution practices, authored chapters within Examiners in Bankruptcy Cases: A Guide for Examiners, Courts and Practitioners. As Co-Chair of the New York City Bar’s Subcommittee on Examiners in Bankruptcy, Mr. Slome also penned the preface and edited various chapters.

The book, written by a number of attorneys who have served as or represented examiners in leading cases and former bankruptcy judges who have presided over such cases, this book is replete with real-world advice and a collection of actual forms covering the gamut of the examiner process. Without question, this title helps practitioners understand and even influence the impact of examiner reports on the interests of their clients and enables judges to make the process smooth and efficient.

This title contains everything that professionals and parties to bankruptcy proceedings need to know about the role of examiners in contemporary bankruptcy cases. Examiners in Bankruptcy Cases: A Guide for Examiners, Courts and Practitioners is written for attorneys (partners, associates, in-house counsel, and government attorneys, including those in the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Trustee’s Office), as well as federal and state court judges, accountants, financial consultants, and anyone else whose professional roles intersect with the world of bankruptcy. As the scope of examiner responsibilities and duties expands and becomes more varied, the potential impact of examiner reports on Chapter 11 cases and their outcomes increases as well. With the proliferation of examiners being appointed, particularly in complex bankruptcy cases, this work is a must-have and a must-read reference on:

  • The examiner selection and appointment process through the discharge order
  • The examiner’s duties and powers and limitations on such powers
  • The examiner’s investigation, the issuance of the examiner report, and the report’s evidentiary use and limitations
