Receiverships are usually driven by secured creditors to recover debts on loans which are in default. In 90% of these cases the creditor is a bank. In an increasing number of cases, funds which have acquired loans from banks are moving to appoint receivers quite early in the debt recovery process. We have established a reputation for achieving valuations on assets in excess of independent valuations.


We have deep expertise in large complex examinerships where we have established a very strong reputation for assisting troubled companies restructure and successfully resume trading.
