Receiverships & Monitorships

We have extensive experience with federal and state regulatory receiverships. Mr. McNamara has been appointed receiver, liquidating receiver, and monitor by courts in more than twenty different actions brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the California Department of Corporations, the California Attorney General’s Office, and other state agencies. In these receiverships, our team has taken over several dozen businesses, ranging from investment companies, nutritional supplement businesses, illegal loan modification operations, and consumer product distributors. The operations have ranged from modest single locations to multi-site businesses with millions of dollars in turnover and hundreds of employees. Through strategic litigation, we have recovered in excess of $100 million in assets for consumers, and interfaced with federal and state officials in parallel criminal and regulatory investigations.
