Business Law Training: Everything Must Go!: Sales of Assets in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases
Financially troubled companies often turn to bankruptcy court for help in converting assets to cash through a bankruptcy sale, creating opportunities for buyers who know how to navigate the peculiarities of the bankruptcy sale process.
Please join bankruptcy attorney Christopher Combest and business law attorney Ryan Haas for a webinar discussing asset sales in chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. The program will consider the following topics:
- How these sales are structured within a bankruptcy proceeding
- Documentation needed on both the corporate M&A and bankruptcy sides of the process
- Involvement of the bankruptcy court
- Unique protections against liability available to buyers out of bankruptcy sales
Attendees will learn how these sales mirror ordinary acquisitions outside of bankruptcy and how they are also very different – often involving continued marketing by the seller and an auction sale, even after the parties have signed a purchase agreement. Chris and Ryan will explain how these differences create opportunities and pitfalls for savvy buyers.
