Small Commercial Chapter 11 Panel: A Decent Burial — Winding Up the Small Business Debtor

In the Massachusetts economy of the 21st century, insolvency professionals are increasingly called upon after it is too late to save a small business. Thus, our practice is increasingly liquidation-focused, requiring the professional to seek to engage in a process that both tightly controls cost and maximizes value. This panel will explore some of the challenges faced in this area, and will focus on such topics as developments in out-of court liquidations (ABCs, self-managed liquidations and other possible structures), setting up a sale process and the prospects for a viable auction, disposition of intellectual property (particularly where the IP portfolio is of limited value) and other unique assets such as liquor licenses, the liquidation of nonprofit debtors, and the possible use of chapter 7 as an effective disposition tool.
