The Second Edition of this one-volume treatise adds much new material, analysis and insight, reflecting the changing focus of bankruptcy law. Bank lending officers and in-house and outside counsel representing lending institutions will benefit considerably from Collier Lending Institutions.

• Bankruptcy considerations and strategies when structuring and documenting lending transactions
• Workouts and alternatives to bankruptcy
• Specific bankruptcy provisions that a lender must be familiar with: automatic stay; executory contracts; preferences, setoff and fraudulent transfers
• Financing the debtor in possession
• Section 363 sales
