Bankruptcy cases have become too expensive and a less viable alternative for smaller, financially distressed companies. As a result, debtors have more frequently availed themselves of non-bankruptcy vehicles, such as assignments for the benefit of creditors, receiverships, UCC Article 9 Sales, Compositions, and other non-bankruptcy devices. This program discusses these non-bankruptcy alternatives, how they differ from bankruptcy cases, how trade creditors should respond when their customer opts for any of these alternatives and potential preference risk in assignments for the benefit of creditors and receiverships.
