The following attorneys practice Commercial Collections Law:
What types of commercial accounts are subject to collection?
There are usually statutes of limitation governing commercial accounts. If an account is more than four years old, your business litigation team may be unable to file a collections lawsuit. Other than this limitation, the decision to litigate or not squarely resides with you, the client. In most cases, you are also in control of whether or not to accept partial payment from the defaulted debtor. Most companies factor in the size of the account, the litigation costs, and the nature of their relationship with the debtor. If there is a large amount of money involved, there are no issues with the contract that may complicate the litigation, and you do not have an ongoing business relationship with the debtor, a collections lawsuit is usually in order.
What can business lawyers do that a debt buyer cannot do?
It is important to understand that a debt collector cannot file a lawsuit to collect your commercial accounts. There are a number of additional advantages to using experienced business lawyers to handle your collection needs:
- An attorney can obtain an order of supplemental proceeding, requiring the debtor to appear in court and answer questions under oath about his or her assets.
- An attorney has the resources to perform a thorough investigation of a debtor’s real property and other assets.
- An attorney can perform legal discovery, and answer questions such as where the debtor works.
- An attorney can pursue account and wage garnishments, file judgment liens and pursue other legal strategies to recover the money owed to you.
Your attorney also lends an air of professionalism to your debt collection effort, and a debt buyer simply does not have that kind of reputation.
