SEC Receiverships

Neligan LLP’s aggressive yet practical approach makes the firm a top choice for clients requiring expertise in receiverships, and our attorneys have served as counsel to receivers appointed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in a number of enforcement actions, including the multi-billion dollar Allen Stanford receivership as well as the cross-border InverWorld receivership involving parallel proceedings in the Cayman Islands.

In SEC receivership cases, our lawyers work to protect the interests of investors, creditors and victims of fraud, representing SEC receivers in cases of insider fraud, Ponzi schemes, and other forms of investment fraud. We can assist in the negotiation, documentation and enforcement of consent degrees, help identify and locate assets, investigate and pursue causes of action against culpable third parties, and work with government officials and other parties to recover fraudulently transferred assets, minimizing damage and maximizing the assets of the receivership. Working with SEC receivers, we will assess competing claims and help create a plan for the fair and equitable distribution of recovered assets.

Neligan LLP has vast experience with investigation and prosecution of litigation on behalf of SEC receivers, recovering over $350 million through prosecution and successful resolution of litigation claims in the Allen Stanford receivership.

Agile, intelligent and highly diligent, our attorneys provide top quality legal work, producing favorable results for our SEC receivership clients.
