Julie, Generally the goodwill (customer lists, phone numbers, etc) of a business has a value, often a formula such as 3 times the last year's annual net profits. Once that value is figured out, you sell that to your bet employee and make the payments over time. What did the bankruptcy trustee say that the business was worth when the bankruptcy filing happened? Make sure that the bankruptcy trustee doesn't own the business right now!
