Thousands of appeals are filed each year in bankruptcy cases across the country, yet the subject of bankruptcy appeals as a whole has been infrequently discussed or written about.
The second edition of ABI's Bankruptcy Appeals Manual: Winning Your Bankruptcy Appeal is a complete desktop manual for practitioners faced with an appeal in a bankruptcy case. It includes a discussion of all of the "must know" issues relevant to an appeal, including:
- Choosing the proper forum
- Standards for review
- Stays pending appeal
It also provides guidance on drafting appellate pleadings and presenting an effective appellate argument.
Additionally, the updated manual includes the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Rules found in Part VIII of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, and pertinent provisions from the Bankruptcy Code and other federal statutes.
ABI's Bankruptcy Appeals Manual provides comprehensive coverage of all of the references and practical guidance that a practitioner – whether a novice or seasoned veteran – will need to successfully prosecute, or defend against, a bankruptcy appeal.
