Receiverships

Burr & Forman's commitment to the changing needs of lenders and creditors is evidenced by its substantial Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy practice.

Burr has over 50 attorneys concentrating in this area of law, making the firm one of the largest bankruptcy practice groups in the region. This allows individual attorneys the ability to focus on narrow specialties. The group was recently ranked by Law360 as the 36th largest Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy team in the United States. Based on this ranking, Burr's team is the largest in the Southeast. In 2012, 10 of our creditors' rights and bankruptcy attorneys were listed as a leading practitioner in Bankruptcy/Restructuring by the highly regarded Chambers USA. 

We frequently represent lenders seeking to appoint receivers for businesses or assets they are lending on in order to protect the lenders from the dissipation of their collateral. We also represent the receivers who are appointed over the operation of various businesses and/or assets to assist in prosecuting actions on behalf of the receiver, running the underlying entity, protecting properties, dealing with county and city issues and permits, and the sale of assets out of the receivership.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “I have found them very responsive to our requests and requirements, and very knowledgeable of the relevant areas. They are conscious of cost containment and getting the job done. They don’t just churn paper and create billable hours. Everything they do is directed toward achieving our aims. They want us as the client to understand where things are and what our options are, and make sure we understand the consequences of all the options that are available to us. They let us pick door number one or door number two in the knowledge of what we’re leaving behind. They are able to resolve issues using common sense and reasonableness. We speak very highly of them.”
