In certain situations where a company is in default of its loan obligations, such lenders or creditors may consider seeking the appointment of a receiver to safeguard their interests. A receivership takes place when the court appoints a receiver to oversee the interests of all stakeholders and to maximize the value of an estate to its constituents. A receiver acts on behalf of lenders or creditors under the specific direction of the court. Typically, a receiver is appointed to take control of all of the debtors’ property with the authority to liquidate assets and wind‐down business affairs.
