In the often-nasty negotiating battles that rage in bankruptcy court, investment banker Jeffrey Chanin comes across as someone who can hold his ground. He's big, about 300 pounds on a 6-foot frame. He talks tough, with a deep, gravelly voice. And Chanin also is shrewd, a military history buff and product of working-class Brooklyn and Harvard Law School. "He knows how to move people," said Craig Cogut, a Century City lawyer and investment banker. Chanin, he added, "is a bulldog."

Going after a company that's under bankruptcy court protection--as Federated Department Stores is doing with R.H. Macy & Co.--isn't buying on the cheap. Experts say it's a complicated and costly way of doing a takeover, merger or acquisition, and one with significant risks. Yet, merger and bankruptcy experts alike predict a steady and increasing stream of such acquisitions, including takeovers that appear at first blush to be unwanted--as in the Macy-Federated situation--or downright hostile.

Orange County is about to close a deal that would postpone repayment of nearly $1 billion in short-term debts for a year, averting a default that threatened to brand one of the nation's wealthiest counties a deadbeat borrower. Bondholders met with county representatives Friday in Los Angeles to forge a settlement that--even as it offers a welcome reprieve to the bankrupt county government--will cost the county nearly a percentage point extra in interest, at a price of more than $9 million.
