Commercial Collections

Recovery of business debt is a reality of any business. Spengler Nathanson attorneys can assist you in your efforts to follow federal and state collection laws. Before you undertake collection, be advised that numerous collection practices can cause serious repercussions.

 

Is your company permitted by law to call customers at an odd hour or to disclose to a third party that your customer owes you money? In many instances, the sooner you retain counsel to assist you pursuing your delinquent commercial accounts, the sooner your company will be in a position to collect the debt or make a determination that collection effort is not warranted.
