Complex disputes? Sometimes clients need a receiver’s help.
State and federal courts in Florida regularly appoint receivers, as officers and arms of the court, to assist in resolving complex problems. The receiver’s role may involve marshaling, maintaining, managing, and safeguarding the assets of the receivership estate. This course of action effectively facilitates the monitoring of funds, assets, and property of any entities under the receivership. The goal is often a subsequent distribution of these assets under the court’s supervision.
While Florida and federal statutory code may provide specific authority in particular cases for state and federal agencies to seek the appointment of a receiver, individual victims commonly ask the court to use its equitable powers to appoint a receiver. Receiverships can be an effective technique in many types of matters. These include:
- Accounting Actions
- Business Disputes
- Corporate Restructuring
- Fraudulent Property Transfers
- Liquidations and Dissolutions
- Post-Judgment Enforcement
- Trusts and Estates
- Public Welfare & Safety
- Consumer Protection
- Real Estate
- SEC matters
- Corporate Investigations
- Domestic Relations
