Latham & Watkins expands its Book of Jargon franchise yet again with the release of its glossary of restructuring and insolvency terminology. The app is designed to provide a basic understanding of over 1,000 terms encountered in cross-border restructurings.

The Book of Jargon series includes the following practice area-specific glossaries:

  • European Capital Markets and Bank Finance: European-Specific Corporate Finance and Banking Terms
  • Global Restructuring: Global Restructuring Terminology
  • US Corporate and Bank Finance: Corporate and Bank Finance Slang and Terminology
  • US Project Finance: Project Development, Acquisition and Finance Slang and Terminology

John Houghton, Head of European Restructuring and Global Co-Chair of the Restructuring, Insolvency & Workouts Practice Group, said:

This resource can be used on-the-go and represents a deep archive of information that will be of benefit to everyone in the international restructuring field, no matter what their experience and background.

Latham’s Book of Jargon is an interesting franchise effort. Instead of producing a bunch of disparate mobile apps about various topics, the firm has created a brand that connects all of its apps together reinforcing the firm’s experience in corporate-related matters.
