Liquidation: Legal Issues When a Client Decides to Close a Business

Description

Planning for an LLC's eventual liquidation can be as important as formation. Well planned and efficient liquidations help LLC members preserve value. Messy liquidations are costly and rapidly diminish value.

Whether triggered by a provision in a buy/sell agreement or on the basis of a statutory provision, liquidations are a process of marshaling assets, providing a variety of notices, satisfying debts and other liabilities, and eventually liquidating distributions to LLC members.

When planned and managed effectively, the process can preserve substantial value for clients.

This program provides a practical guide to liquidations of LLCs.
