In August 2017, the American Bar Association published the third revised version of its widely acclaimed treatise, Reorganizing Failing Businesses featuring chapters co-authored by Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer LLP attorneys.  

The publication included chapters entitled, “United States Securities Laws Implications of Corporate Restructurings,” authored by Aaron L. Hammer, Etahn M. Cohen and Mark S. Melickian, and “Financing a Chapter 11 Case: Debtor-in-Possession Financing,” authored by Jonathan P. Friedland and Elizabeth B. Vandesteeg.
