The Business Bankruptcy Committee has published their February 2013 newsletter. The mission of the Business Bankruptcy Committee is to be the principal Business Law Section resource dealing with business bankruptcy, corporate restructuring, and insolvency through cutting-edge educational programming and to be a resource for bankruptcy reform.

This article addresses how net operating losses (NOLs) from prior years can be used to offset future income if the company successfully emerges from bankruptcy, with minimal structural change to the financial foundation of the bankrupt corporation. The article further discusses the use of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (the Code), as well as the Code's special bankruptcy rules and suggestions on preserving NOLs; and
