Chapman’s "Defaulted Securities: The Guide for Trustees and Bondholders" advances understanding and consideration of issues related to trustees and bondholders in corporate and municipal financings. This comprehensive guide begins with a review and analysis of the basics of transaction documents and their provisions and terms. From this background flows the role of the trustees and holders, checklists and consideration of conflicts, forms of communication, rights, remedies, workouts, settlements, amendments, bankruptcy and litigation strategies, and use of trust instruction proceedings and court approval, as well as holders’ direction as effective means of resolving defaulted securities. Traditional bonds, notes, debentures with and without collateral, subordination, and exchange offers, along with more recent products of asset-backed securitizations, derivatives, and other more esoteric structures, are reviewed and analyzed as to the developed case law and experience.
