Investigative Forensic Accounting, Litigation Support And Investigative Receiverships
Canadian insolvency legislation grants a Licensed Insolvency Trustee significant powers to augment forensic investigations and recover assets. Similarly, the Canadian Courts can grant Court orders appointing an Investigative Receiver to investigate assets and records and report back to the Court, without the authority to take possession of assets.
Albert Gelman Inc. (“AGI”) has been appointed by the Court as Investigative Receiver on numerous occasions and has significant experience discharging its duties in this regard. Orders appointing AGI as Investigative Receiver include the following:
- Appointment Order of by J. Brown issued on June 30, 2011 in re: General Electric Canada Real Estate Financing Holding Company et al. vs. Liberty Assisted Living Inc. et al.
- Appointment Order of J. Morgan issued on June 27, 2016 in re: Continental Casualty Company vs. Symons et al.
- Appointment Order of J. Koehnen issued on October 13, 2020 in re: Tracy Hui et al representing the Enforcement Committee of the Debenture Holders vs. CIM International Group Inc. Bayview Creek (CIM) LP, et al.
Enhanced powers pursuant to insolvency legislation or Court order can include:
- examinations of persons under oath,
- production and delivery of property and records,
- recovery of property obtained fraudulently or otherwise transferred or hidden,
- the declaration that transactions deliberately contrived at “undervalue” be void.
We can also act in the capacity of Expert Witness or Officer of the Court for the execution of Anton Piller Orders and Mareva Injunctions.
