This chapter discusses the avenues for liquidating a failed business outside of bankruptcy. While liquidations involving companies of any significant size are typically accomplished through bankruptcy, state, and federal equity receiverships and assignments for the benefit of creditors provide alternatives for smaller more localized liquidations. These approaches are more informal and less restrictive than bankruptcy. The roles of the assignor and receiver as liquidator, including duties, costs, powers, and compensation are reviewed. The right of the assignor or receiver to pursue actions under the applicable state Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act is also discussed.
