Receivership & Monitorship

A History Of Groundbreaking Work With Court-Appointed Receiverships

The work undertaken by Seiden Law has included dozens of court-appointed receiverships on behalf of our clients, including complex international matters. Whether enforcing judgments or managing businesses in situations of distress or litigated disputes, we are diligent in our approach to every receivership. Our experience has included running companies for the benefit of creditors and enforcing judgments in the U.S., China, the Cayman Islands and Hong Kong.

When the court appoints a receiver, that person takes possession of specific assets to manage or liquidate that property, investigate fraud or perform other duties on behalf of the court. This can be done to enforce a legal judgment or assist creditors in recovering funds.

Robert Seiden, Managing Partner of Seiden Law, has been appointed by federal and state judges in the United States over twenty-five times as a Court-Appointed Receiver over businesses in a broad spectrum of industries, including biotech, pharmaceutical, real estate, clean energy, and oil and gas. The work has led to the recovery of many millions of dollars for the plaintiffs and included, among other responsibilities, tracking down assets in various jurisdictions including Hong Kong, China and the Caribbean.
