This book deals with the end-game for a business. No business entity lasts forever and anyone faced with the task of liquidating a business at the end of its run needs to know that a liquidation doesn't present an insurmountable problem. In fact, substantial value is often overlooked. This book explains the various options for liquidations and the pros and cons for each possibility. The book also can be used as a clear how-to guide for someone who wishes to undertake the job of a liquidator or trustee. From start to finish, the book lays out the steps and pitfalls in liquidations.

Review quote

Considering more than 95 percent of businesses fail within their first five years, it's nothing short of remarkable that Last Rights is the first book of its kind. ...The authors' collective experience makes for a resonant step-by-step presentation that balances liquidation's business and legal aspects. * The CommonWealth *
