Published by the Business Law Section's Business Bankruptcy Committee's Subcommittee on Claims and Priorities, The Bankruptcy Claims Handbook is a unique resource for lawyers seeking to develop greater familiarity with bankruptcy law. It will provide entry into bankruptcy analysis and processes for practitioners embarking on identifying, asserting, objecting to and/or defending claims in a bankruptcy case, and evaluating the manner that claims may be treated.

Providing a starting point for legal analysis, highlighting key issues, and answering key bankruptcy questions, this guide will provide you with guidance on:

  • A summary of debtor's duties, including the preparation of the debtor's schedules, a chart that includes the debtor's assets and liabilities
  • The life cycle of the claim, from when the claim arises to the contents, effects, timing and location of filing, concluding with rules regarding amendments to a claim
  • Secured claims and transitions into unsecured claims
  • The quasi-claim known as “reclamation” claim or the right of a vendor to demand the return of certain delivered goods from the debtor
  • Administrative expenses, including the process for claiming these expenses
  • Objection to claims
  • And much more
