Curated Coverage

The Home Page is organized intuitively, grouping related content under “task-based tiles,” such as Legal Analysis, Practical Guidance, Example Agreements and Forms, News, Law & Rules, Court Opinions. Dockets can be searched by court, recent cases, or orders. Search results can be filtered by bankruptcy chapter (9, 11, 15) or document type (Section 363 sale motions).

Similarly, all our Practice Pages pull together content related to the issue under consideration, including mapping to on-point coverage in Bloomberg Law: Bankruptcy Treatise and on-point secondary coverage, example forms, dockets, and related primary source content. Additional enhancements include an interactive map for state fraudulent transfer laws (Chapter 11 Reorganizations, Business Liquidations, Cross-Border Insolvencies Practice Pages), an interactive map of state exemption laws (Consumer Bankruptcies Page), and ALI-ABA Bankruptcy Forms.

Unlimited, unrestricted searches and alerts for dockets make it easy to learn more. The Bankruptcy Practice Center gives you links to easily search U.S. bankruptcy filings by chapter number and to find U.K. corporate insolvency filings. You can also start research at the trial or appellate level and then further target your search using the fields of our Docket Search. With bankruptcy courts selected, limit your search of trial proceedings to certain chapters, to dockets with listed assets or specific adversary proceedings.
