Persistent, Professional Commercial Collections Law Firm
We believe in the "broken windows" theory of law enforcement as it applies to collections and judgments. What that means is you have to be tough on small infractions because they lead to large infractions. There are some collections firms that will take on any matter, hoping to settle for pennies on the dollar. We take on matters we believe in, and we fight to receive what is legitimately owed under the law, including interest and legal fees.
Commercial Debt Collection
CEO realizes there is $300,000 in contracts where the services were received without objection but the client firms never paid. Ad Agency's standard contract requires client firms to pay Ad Agency's legal fees, so Ad Agency is able to recover what they are owed without cost to their firm. Ad Agency will likely see a nice boost in revenues immediately as some firms usually pay as soon as they get the legal letter, some firms are likely to pay as soon as we sue, and some firms are likely to pay eventually when a judgment is entered against them.
Typical Commercial Debt Collection Cases #1:
Ad Agency is trying to raise cash to invest in a new project
Three years ago there were eight units more than 60 days behind on their rent of which five units were more than 90 days behind and two units were more than 180 days behind. Owner hired a "tough" law firm to get control of the situation. There are now twelve units more than 90 days behind and 8 units more than 180 days behind. Owner's cash flow is being depleted, the sales/collateral value of his building is going down, and Owner cannot afford to maintain the building the way the paying Tenants expect it to be maintained. Tenants are non-renewing. Owner decides he needs a truly professional collections firm on the case, not a tough-talking real estate lawyer.
