Description

It’s axiomatic that the sale of an asset does not carry with it the seller’s liabilities apart from any liability that may attach to the asset itself, such a lien. But there are substantial exceptions to this rule. In many instances, the asset buyer becomes liable, by operation of law, for the seller’s assets. If this liability arises, it can easily undo the basic economic assumptions of the parties entering the transaction. This program will provide you with a real world guide to identifying the risks of successor liability in transactions, including liability under common and statutory law, bankruptcy law, and discuss drafting techniques to reduce the risk of successor liability.

  • Fact patterns giving rise to successor liability – business continuation, fraud, product line continuation, and more
  • Buyer liability at UCC Article 9 foreclosure sales
  • Successor liability under federal employment and environmental statutes and under state sales/use tax law
  • Drafting techniques to limit or eliminate the risk of liability
