Many court-appointed court receivers, court referees, and partition referees are either attorneys with limited hands on knowledge of turning around and managing underperforming assets or non-attorneys with limited understanding of the critical legal aspects involved in receivership work. At Receivership Specialists, we understand both aspects of receivership work. Business partners Kevin Singer and John Rachlin work together to oversee each receivership appointment. Kevin Singer is a licensed real estate broker, licensed contractor, and has owned and managed numerous businesses and two real estate companies. Mr. Singer brings over 30 years of real estate and business experience to your matter. In addition to having been president and owner of a property management and brokerage company, John Rachlin has been a licensed attorney for over 30 years with experience in various areas of real estate and business law. As such, Receivership Specialists’ clients benefit from the vast real world experience of two experts. Every case is analyzed to ensure that the best resources are used for each project and costs are kept to a minimum. This business philosophy has earned Receivership Specialists the respect of its clients and industry professionals.
Since 2001, Mr. Singer and Mr. Rachlin have handled over 519 cases for large and small banks, private lenders, private investors and municipalities. They have served as Receiver or Referee over rental income properties, estates, construction projects, businesses and partition sales. They have managed and transitioned over $2,000,000,000 in assets. Mr. Singer is past president and served on the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles/Orange County Chapter of the California Receivers Forum. He also lectures on various topics in the receivership field. In addition to the work they perform as receivers, Mr. Singer and Mr. Rachlin find time to give back to the community through their volunteer work with Vista Del Mar, Venice Family Clinic, Children’s Cancer Fund, and Beyond Shelter.

Why You Should Have a Receiver Appointed to Protect Your Interests
The simple answer is: it makes financial sense. The costs of the receiver are usually paid through the receivership estate. The sooner a receiver is appointed, the less chance there is of one of the parties neglecting, damaging or pilfering the collateral assets. In addition, a receiver often brings a fresh management perspective to the real estate or business under receivership and can effectively implement accounting and management practices that benefit the collateral asset well beyond the receivership appointment.
How to Get Us Appointed to Your Matter
Please contact our office or have your legal counsel contact our office to discuss the most efficient and effective way of having us appointed to your matter. Although judges sometimes recommend us as receivers to parties that don’t have a specific receiver in mind, we are typically appointed to cases where the petitioning party specifically requests, to a court, that we are the receiver appointed to the matter. Quite often, we are available to attend the appointment hearing and share our qualifications with the parties and the Judge.
