Most Chapter 11 cases are small business cases, and many of these cases are filed and handled by attorneys who are not Chapter 11 specialists. This handbook was written for these attorneys and is designed to serve as a reference and guide to attorneys in handling Chapter 11 cases for small business and individual clients. It contains all of the resource materials needed to handle a typical case of this sort except the local rules and forms, copies of which may be obtained from the local bankruptcy court. The text and supplemental materials contained in this edition incorporate all changes in the bankruptcy law and procedure through January 1, 1998. The supplement included in the book updates any changes through 2000. Chapters include: Chapter 11 questions; advising small business debtor; preparing and filing Chapter 11 case; handling Chapter 11 case; and representing creditor in Chapter 11 case. Also included are the test of all relevant chapters of the Bankruptcy Code; the entire text of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure; samples of frequently-used motions, applications, notices and other forms, documents and pleadings; and completed samples of the bankruptcy petitions, schedules, statements and lists needed in a typical small business Chapter 11 case.
