Collecting Debt from a Defunct Company

Collecting Debt from a Defunct Company

Your success depends on collecting debt from a business depends on a number of factors, including how the business was set up. Was it an LLC, a sole proprietorship, or a corporation? The type of debt also factors in. Is it a contract or agreement, or does the debt arise from the non-contractual conduct of the corporation such as fraud, violations of consumer protections law or other wrongful conduct? The amount of the dead corporation’s debt plays a role in collectability as well.
Collecting debt is even more difficult when the debtor company has closed its doors.
