Why Receivership?

A receiver is a skilled turnaround consultant that is responsible, as a trustee, for all of the receivership assets. The receiver’s goal is to maximize returns from these assets, either through a going-concern sale or liquidation. Initially, a receiver’s actions are concentrated on the possession, protection and preservation of the assets.
