the bankruptcy estate is (has not been) favoured/given preferential treatment


Explanation:
This probably has to do with the order of claims by various parties. More context would settle the matter.

E.g.,
"Hvis skyldneren har begunstiget en kreditor på andre kreditorers bekostning, kan den af skyldneren indgåede retshandel omstødes, hvis skyldneren ved retshandelen blev insolvent, og den begunstigede kreditor havde kendskab eller burde have haft kendskab hertil."

It is almost certainly not a simple matter of the estate being the beneficiary of some legal device.

NB it is a co. in insolvent vs. solvent (!) liquidation in BrE terms.
