Ideas:
“  My scholarship explores the ways in which corporate, tax, and bankruptcy laws shape commercial exchanges in the capital and securities markets, privileging some parties at the expense of others. In recent years, I have written extensively on commercial restructurings under chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and the litigation of disputes pertaining to complex commercial financing arrangements.  ”
