A fundamental principle of partnership law – widely incorporated into LLC statues – is that you get to choose your own partner.  A partner or LLC member may assign his or her interest to a third-party but the assignee is only entitled to the assignor’s distributions, not his or her voting or substantive rights.  But in insolvency and bankruptcy everything gets more complicated.  Whether a creditor or trustee (holding the interest of the debtor) gets more than economic rights is a complicated question that’s resolved by reference to the nature of the underlying operating agreement and its language. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the treatment of LLC interests when an LLC member becomes insolvent or files for bankruptcy.
