Editorial Reviews

"Last Rights is a simple and practical overview to be used by professionals engaged in corporate liquidations. It offers a thoughtful and exceptionally clear presentation of the advantages and disadvantages that will confront them. The real life experiences of the authors add to the value ofthis book.
