  • How to identify common risks in distressed sales
  • Practical tips for formulating sale strategies and getting deals closed
  • How investment bankers can assist (even small- to mid-sized sellers)
  • How to analyze ethical issues arising in distressed transactions (e.g., who’s your client, ABA opinion re: negotiations, handling scrivener’s errors, and more)
  • Potential bankruptcy alternatives, including assignments for the benefit of creditors (ABCs), Article 9 sales, and receiverships
  • The impact of recent bankruptcy law decisions, including Jevic, General Motors, and others
