Post-confirmation liquidation and litigation trusts prove to be effective tools in working out certain issues in a Chapter 11 Case. Section 1123(b)(3)(B) of the Bankruptcy Code authorizes the creation of such trusts, given that there had been a well-devised reorganization plan that clearly identifies the claims and interests of both parties. The primary purpose, of course, is to make even distribution of trusts to beneficiaries.

Liquidating trusts are organizations made to liquidate assets transferred for distribution to the beneficiaries. These are effective in winding down businesses included in a Chapter 11 case, and enterprises that dissolve outside of bankruptcy. In sum, may it be a product of a bankruptcy plan or not, there are factors that must be considered in liquidating trusts. In addition, because of the increasing frequency, certain aspects may not be given emphasis and due attention in an imminent Chapter 11 case, resulting to issues in post-confirmation of the plan.
