Bankruptcy and restructuring is a highly regulated area of law. Given today’s business environment, companies are often faced with situations in which they must reorganize and restructure their finances in order to survive. In the competitive business market, companies need expert legal advice and analysis of existing regulations, statutes and judicial precedent when making decisions about the future of companies. When companies go bankrupt, there is a lot of information to process and factors to consider, and the Department of Justice oversees the companies dismantling and the distribution of assets to creditors to ensure the law is not violated.  The National Law Review publishes updates on this process and the resulting and relevant litigation.
