5 Acknowledgements This dissertation is probably unlike most others, in that the author is already a tenured professor. Thus, much of the anxiety normally associated with the project was absent, and instead I found the project to be a joy. My advisor and promoter, Prof. Dr. Oscar Couwenberg, deserves much of the credit for making the project so enjoyable. Not only did he guide me through the unfamiliar waters of the Dutch university system, but his comments on each of the chapters greatly improved the end result. Hopefully much future collaboration is yet to come. Many thanks also to the members of my dissertation committee, Abe de Jong, Robert Lawless and Frank M.J. Verstijlen, Seton Hall University School of Law and Dean Patrick Hobbs, for supporting my sabbatical project, the New York Socie ty Library, where I wrote much of this dissertation, Bloomberg LP, which provided some additional data for this project, and Ana Santos and Silvia Cardoso at Seton Hall for their help in formatting this manuscript. I should also thank Professor Elizabeth Warren, my LL.M. thesis advisor ten years ago at Harvard Law School, who first got me interested in measuring the costs of chapter 11, and the late Professor Clark Byse, of both Harvard and Boston University School of Law, who first got me interested in becoming a law professor. I am extremely appreciative of the support of my family. My daughter Vivian simply wants it to be known that she helped. Our dog Myrna, whom I still miss very much, faithfully slept by my side while Oscar and I planned the early stages of this project. As always, my greatest thanks go to my wife, Jennifer Hoyden, who has edited, corrected, and improved this manuscript from start to finish. She plays the biggest part in everything I do. Stephen J. Lubben Friday, June 4, 2010

6 * * * This dissertation is based in part on data gathered by the author as part of the ABI Chapter 11 Professional Fee Study, which was funded by a grant from the American Bankruptcy Institute, the ABI Endowment Fund, and the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges. I am grateful for the ABI and NCBJ s assistance with this project. All conclusions are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the ABI or the NCBJ or their members.
