Heller Ehrman Asset Liquidation

Received via e-mail:

Hello Current and Former Heller Ehrman Employees:

Many of you have expressed interest in buying various assets (Aeron/Herman Miller chairs, other furniture and some IT equipment.) through the liquidation process. First, I’d like to assure everyone that Heller employees will have the first chance to purchase these items.

Currently we are waiting on bankruptcy court approval to engage Quality Office Liquidation, QOL. Once engaged, QOL will be responsible for the selling of all furniture and certain electronics. Prior to receiving court approval no sales can be agreed to and nothing can leave the premises of 333 Bush Street.

During the next week I’d like to get an idea of exactly what items people are interested in. If you want to purchase something, please send an email to liquidation@hellerehrman.com by April 27. After compiling the list of items, we will sit down with QOL and assign a fair price for each item. You can expect to hear back from us shortly with regard to cost and timing.

NOTE- AT THIS TIME NO DESKTOPS, LAPTOP OR SERVERS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AND WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN THEY MAY BE AVAILABLE; LIKEWISE NO ART IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AS IT WILL BE SOLD THROUGH A DIFFERENT PROCESS AT A LATER DATE, WHICH WE WILL PROVIDE NOTIFICATION OF.

You should also note that depending on the items removed, there may be restrictions on the timing and manner in which they are removed from the building.

If you have any question please contact me via e-mail at sfarrell@dsi.biz

Best Regards,
Sean Farrell, DSI

    What about the Seattle Office? Thanks.

    Much of the office equipment has already been “liquidated” when departing employees filled up boxes with personal items and “not so personal items!”

    The firm that took over the SV office bragged (in the form of statements by its managing partner) that it walked in and took possession of computers, servers, etc. that were just left lying around. I left more than a year before the end — but you better believe had I still been around I would have helped myself to anything not nailed down. Did anyone believe there was going to be orderly and careful liquidation managed to husband remaining resources? Has anyone forgotten who was in charge of the IT department? That group is probably still holding weekly meetings to discuss “deltas” and “net-nets”.

    Classic!

    So…ex heller employee; we will sell you this $100 chair for $90. From that $90 you give us for that chair we will give you back $10 (of your money) to satisfy the $100 we owe you. In other words, ex heller employee, will you buy this $100 chair for $120 and release us from our obligation to pay you the $90 we owe you.

    Damn, that is an expensive chair!

    Well, I grabbed about 12 bags of Peet’s coffee on my last day!~

    Some people could open a Staples with all the “assets” they made off with…

    Well, after seeing the notice of intent to abandon office supplies in the Bankruptcy section on the site, I wished I’d taken more than the rest of the box of Uniballs from my desk drawer…
