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 nearly 50 attorneys concentrating in this area of law, making the firm one of the largest bankruptcy practice groups in the Southeast. This allows individual attorneys the ability to focus on narrow specialties. Our team of attorneys are continuously listed as leading practitioners in Bankruptcy/Restructuring by the highly regarded Chambers USA in addition to the firm being ranked in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

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.
