Receivership

Expertise
Our National Receivership Practice is recognized for our expertise in administrative, state, and federal receivership proceedings. Our experience spans a wide breadth of industries, ranging from manufacturing to auto dealerships; from food distribution to energy brokering; and from retail to real estate. Members of our team draw upon their experiences as receiver, as counsel to receivers, and as counsel to parties seeking the appointment of a receiver. We provide skilled representation in all aspects of receivership proceedings. Members of our National Receivership Practice are invited speakers and published authors on receiverships and related matters.

Each of our attorneys in the National Receivership Practice brings a wealth of knowledge to our clients. We draw upon this knowledge to:
  • Revive businesses from financial collapse
  • Assist in the stabilization and sale of ongoing business operations
  • Establish profitable operating practices
  • Liquidate collateral
  • Protect creditors and litigate, if necessary
Our attorneys have been involved in numerous business and asset sales, many of which have been court-approved, “free and clear” sales. The depth of our receivership experience has achieved successful outcomes for creditors, lenders, investors, and consumers.
