At Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen & Associates LLC, our aggressive commercial collections attorneys are ethical when it comes to making sure you get paid, but they are also relentless. It can be difficult to know when to take action, especially if you are trying to avoid a confrontation. We are here to tell you that if you are asking the question, the time is now.

Balancing a business relationship and collecting on receivables

Part of running a successful business is building relationships with your customers. A level of trust and rapport is built between a business and its customers. Retaining customers sometimes means you might have to offer a discount. There also might be times where you need to provide a little leeway with due dates and payments. However, letting a customer take advantage of you repeatedly, lets the customer run the show. You give your power and discretion away to your customers. So where is the line? How do you know when you need to take action and hire a commercial collections attorney.

Red flags: Understanding when you need to take action

Generally, any receivable that has reached 60-90 days requires immediate attention and serious action. Here are some other red flags that indicate you need to pay attention to the debtor and consider taking action immediately:

  • Consistently late payments
  • A debtor becomes unresponsive
  • A debtor becomes evasive
  • Other signs that your debtor’s financial situation is deteriorating

Don’t wait for the red flags to become emergencies. Proactive measures and immediate action can save you time and money. Hiring an aggressive and relentless commercial collections attorney with over 50 years of experience is an efficient step toward streamlining your collections efforts.
