When debtors pay one of their creditors within 90 days of filing for business bankruptcy, the creditor may be subject to a preference action. Bankruptcy trustees pursue preference actions against creditors claiming the debtor’s payment was preferential and possibly fraudulent. A preference action is used to demand that creditors return the payment to the bankruptcy estate so that the “preferential payment” is equally distributed to unsecured creditors.
At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, we defend and negotiate preference actions, often obtaining substantial savings for our clients. We provide aggressive, relentless, effective, and ethical defense of preference actions.
We have nearly 50 years of commercial debt collection experience. We will apply our years of experience and legal skills to help minimize your liability to the bankruptcy estate. Contact our Massachusetts collections law firm today to meet or speak with a highly skilled creditors’ rights lawyer.
