The latest edition of Absolute Priority covers a range of cutting edge topics, including:

- Section 503(b)(9) administrative claim developments.
This edition also reports on some of our recent representations, including the successful Chapter 11 reorganization of our client, retailer Crabtree & Evelyn, Ltd., and our work for official committees of unsecured creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases involving major retailers. Recent committee cases include Eddie Bauer, Uno Restaurant Holdings, Ritz Camera, Filene’s Basement, BT Tires Group, Gottschalk’s, Bernie’s Audio Video TV Appliance, G.I.
