Business Dispute Receiverships

Business Dispute and Commercial Receiverships

Business Dispute Receiverships

Griswold Law is often appointed by courts as a receiver to take control of businesses subject to disputes, which may occur between partners or other interested parties. Often, a receiver will be tasked with maintaining the day-to-day operations of the business while the parties litigate the matter.

Below are four common focal points during a business dispute receivership:

Short-Term Financing Struggles

When a company is distressed by a dispute, keeping up with the company’s financial obligations can be a struggle. Financing decisions typically require collaboration and agreement, which is nearly impossible when there is a significant dispute between partners.

As a court-appointed receiver, we address short-term financing struggles by making clear-headed and unbiased decisions with the business’s best interests in mind.

Compiling Financial Reports

There are few things more important during the receivership period than consistent financial reporting. Every stakeholder needs to have access to accurate information. Plus, our responsibility to the courts is to improve transparency and demonstrate impartiality.

When there have been accusations of embezzlement, money mismanagement, or other illegal activities, historical and real-time financial reports need to be clear and accurate.

Employee Oversight

Owner conflicts cause significant tension in the workplace for employees. When we step in as receiver, we know the importance of providing employees with reassurance and stability. Unnecessary employee turnover leads to lost profits and decreased productivity, so it is in everyone’s best interest for the receiver to provide strong leadership for employees during this time.

Negotiating Delinquencies with Creditors and Taxing Agencies

Unfortunately, distressed properties and conflict-ridden businesses are often tied up in delinquency issues with both creditors and taxing agencies. A receiver negotiates with these entities to reduce the overall tax or credit burden, obtain favorable payment terms, and avoid penalties.

Motel Receiverships

The receivership remedy is an ideal solution for cities forced to deal with non-compliant motel owners and substandard, unsafe motels. This includes abandoned sites, nuisance motels, and substantial code violations. The team at Griswold Law can step in as the court-appointed receiver to address issues of crime, code violations, unlawful occupants, and nuisance conditions.
