Find Your Business Collection Attorney in Massachusetts
For most businesses, extending credit to commercial clients is a typical business practice. Allowing customers to pay on net 30, net 60 or other agreed upon payment terms, not only makes your services more appealing, it also makes them more affordable for customers who must reconcile payments with corporate accounting cycles.
Normally, the practice works well and customers resolve payment before or by the agreed upon payment dates. However, there are instances where it becomes clear that customers will not meet the terms of your payment agreements. Whether this is due to inability to pay, contract disputes or willful deception, these cases require additional steps beyond sending payment notices. For these accounts, it may be time to consider hiring an experienced collection attorney.
Once it is clear that hiring an experienced collections attorney will be necessary to pursue payment, it is important to make sure that you have all pertinent client files related to your case. The more in-depth client information that you have available, the more likely it is that you will be able to recover the debt. These files should include any contracts governing the relationship, all client correspondence, contact information and proof of contract fulfillment.
Recovering commercial debts, particularly those that are older than 90 days, can be a difficult process. Finding an attorney that has experience collecting on both new and aged collections accounts will help ensure that you are able to recover as much of your outstanding debt as possible.
