Any business, no matter how large or small relies on their customers paying their bills. But over the course of doing business, there will inevitably be a customer who does not or cannot pay their bills. When that customer is another business, you may need to resort to aggressive collection techniques.
At Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen & Associates LLC, our experienced collection attorneys are aggressive and relentless, ethically pursuing all manners of collection debt practices provided to us under Massachusetts law.
Advanced legal tactics to collect past-due debts from another business
Chances are, if you are considering a debt collection attorney, your business has already tried collecting the debt on your own. You’ve probably already sent the reminder letters and past-due notices. If you’ve retained a collection agency, they’ve probably sent more notices and maybe even attempted phone calls. A lawyer can do so much more than that. A collections attorney can:
- Investigate the debtor business: If you can determine that there is a personal guarantor or who the principals are, you may be able to discern if there is a possibility to hold any of them personally accountable for the debt.
- Prepare prejudgment motions: Prior to any sort of litigation, you can attempt to secure payment of the debt in advance of litigation through prejudgment motions to ensure that you don’t just get a judgment for the debt, you also get paid.
- Facilitate prejudgment attachments: By filing ex parte attachments to your debtors property and accounts to make sure there are funds available and set aside to satisfy the debt owed to your business.
- Pursue litigation to get a judgment: Securing a judgment in your favor will help you legally collect the debt that is owed to your company.
By incorporating proactive measures in advance of seeking judgment, you can put measures in place from the very beginning to make sure your business not only secures a judgment for the debt, but also gets paid the money it is owed.
Our experienced and aggressive commercial debt collection attorneys regularly employ innovative and strategic tactics to make sure you get paid the money that is owed to your business.
