Receivership services may be used in various situations, including bankruptcy, foreclosure, or other types of financial distress. They can also be used when a company is being liquidated or restructured. In some cases, the receiver is appointed to manage the assets of a company or individual on an interim basis, while in other cases, the receiver is appointed to manage the assets permanently.
The receiver’s responsibilities may include:
- Taking possession and control of the assets
- Identifying, valuing, and preserving the assets
- Managing and operating the assets to generate revenue
- Selling or disposing of the assets
- Paying the company’s or individual’s debts and obligations
- Preparing and submitting reports to the court or other authorized party
Receivership services can be an effective way to manage and preserve the assets of a company or individual that is in financial distress. The court or other authorized party appoints the receiver and acts as an independent third party, which can provide a measure of objectivity and impartiality to the process.
It’s important to note that the receivership process is typically court-supervised, and the receiver’s actions and decisions are subject to court approval. The receivership process may be subject to different laws and regulations in some jurisdictions.

A Turnaround Management Scenario … A borrower in financial distress raises myriad commercial loss concerns for its creditors, including increased risk of less than payment in full of its loan, increased liabilities, additional legal costs and expenses, and greater utilization of creditor resources. When a borrower shows signs of distress, it is critical for the creditor to promptly and proactively develop a thoughtful turnaround management strategic plan to mitigate issues and identify options available to strengthen the creditor’s position in the credit facility. Doing this is an essential first step for a creditor interested in maximizing its recovery and limiting its exposure.
