New ABI Publication Examines Bankruptcys Effects on Manufacturing Supply Chains

Alexandria, Va. — ABI’s latest publication, Interrupted! Understanding Bankruptcy's Effects on Manufacturing Supply Chains, explores the issues that arise when suppliers are unable to make deliveries of promised parts due to financial problems. The manual, authored by John T. Gregg and Patrick E. Mears of Barnes & Thornburg LLP (Grand Rapids, Mich.), Deborah L. Thorne of Barnes & Thornburg LLP (Chicago), Aubrey E. Kauffman of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP (Toronto) Renate Müller and Michael Thierhoff of Thierhoff Müller & Partner (Leipzig, Germany), and Alfonso Castro of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP (New York), expands ABI's Auto Supplier Insolvencies & Bankruptcies manual (ABI, 2006) with more in-depth coverage of supply chain issues in general, which have moved far beyond the scope of financially troubled auto suppliers. This comprehensive manual unravels the knotty intersection of the Uniform Commercial Code and the Bankruptcy Code, and includes special sections on cross-border matters in Canada, Germany and Mexico. Also included in the book is a detailed discussion of relevant case law such as Delphi Corp. and Plastech Engineered Products, as well as sample agreements that outline common protections against supply chain disruptions.
