A Business & Banking Law Firm
Collections and Foreclosures
Our creditors’ rights attorneys understand that successful commercial collections are the result of expeditious processing systems, a keen sense of the likelihood of recovery and an ability to apply pressure to debtors to result in our clients being paid ahead of others. Because our attorneys have experience representing both successful and financially stressed businesses and business owners, they understand how businesses operate and they use this knowledge and experience to maximize recoveries for their lender clients.
Our attorneys understand state garnishment laws, real estate foreclosure processes and remedies, the Federal Bankruptcy Code and the Uniform Commercial Code. A thorough understanding of these laws and procedures allows our attorneys to repossess and protect our clients’ collateral, apply pressure to a debtor when necessary, or when the situation calls for it, to work cooperatively with a troubled business to develop work-out plans that result in a greater recovery for the lender than “scorched earth” litigation.
