NAFER's mission is to provide a forum for federal equity receivers to consult with one another regarding the legal and practical issues they face in order to develop best practices and common solutions. By improving the quality, standardization, and expertise in the receivership field, we aim to make it possible for those choosing receivers to do so with confidence.
Our goal is to establish and maintain the highest level of standards for those who practice as Federal Equity Receivers, and to become the go-to resource for judges and members of government agencies in need of a Receiver. We thoroughly vet each of our applicants, approving only those who qualify and classifying each according to his / her experience:
Full Membership is limited to those who have been appointed as equity receivers in proceedings of material size and complexity at the request of the SEC, CFTC, FTC, FDIC or another Federal agency, and those who have served as primary counsel or forensic accountants to these receivers.
