Bankruptcy Attorneys work with clients who are experiencing bankruptcy in an attempt to help said client determine his or her best course of action. They also make sure that no mistakes are made that would cause the case to be dismissed, and they ensure that their clients' assets are fully protected. Bankruptcy Attorney resumes highlight such skills as representing clients in complex business and commercial litigation, and representing entities and individuals in tax disputes with the IRS. Example Bankruptcy Attorney resumes list courses like commercial law and intellectual property law as classes taken while pursuing their law degree.
