This chapter focuses on the types of causes of action which may belong to the failed business. Lawsuits, such as actions against officers and directors for breach of their duties to the company, actions against lawyers and accountants for professional malpractice, actions to avoid preference payments, and fraudulent transfers made by the debtor are discussed. The aim is to provide a framework for the liquidator's economic analysis of the value of each cause of action by determining the cost and time to litigate and the probability of success and collection.

Keywords:   cause of action, professional malpractice, preference, fraudulent transfer, litigation, economic analysis, probability of success, lawsuit
