Is a Purchase in Bankruptcy Really Free and Clear of Liability During COVID-19?

Seyfarth Synopsis: In acquiring a company in bankruptcy, there is often a tendency to think this guarantees the purchaser will be “free and clear” of any liability (including so-called “successor liability”). This is not necessarily so with wage and hour liability, particularly if the purchaser merely continues to operate virtually the same business that was acquired.

Ordinarily, a bankruptcy debtor’s sale of property ‘free and clear’ of interests under Bankruptcy Code section 363(f) excises from the sold assets any claims made on a theory of successor liability. The purchaser is shielded from successor liability claims in accord with public policy underlying the Bankruptcy Code, including the inequality of allowing one creditor to pursue a purchaser of assets for successor liability while other creditors’ recourse is limited to the proceeds of the asset sale. However, although rarely applied, some bankruptcy courts have found exceptions to this ‘free and clear’ transfer where: (1) the successor expressly or impliedly assumes the liabilities; (2) there is an actual or de facto consolidation or merger of the two companies; (3) the purchaser is a mere continuation of the seller; or (4) the transaction was entered into fraudulently to escape liability. This not-often-discussed and rarely-applied exception is similar to that which has developed in connection with asset purchase sales (which was first recognized under the FLSA and has recently continued to develop in state statutes), as we previously wrote about here.
