Commercial Debt Collection

In order to be successful in the collection of a debt or judgment owed to you or to your business, it is vital that you receive the assistance of an experienced commercial debt collection lawyer or law firm who will aggressively and skillfully take the steps necessary to collect the money which you are owed. The successful collection of a debt requires that you hire a lawyer who has experience with the tactics which debtors will use to avoid paying lawful debts. Pepper Law, PLC is Nashville commercial debt collection law firm with experienced commercial debt collection lawyers.

Successful collection of a commercial debt often requires that you have a lawyer with the resources and the ability to locate concealed assets. It is also important to retain a lawyer or a law firm who has a solid working knowledge of the different procedures available under Tennessee law to "pin down" a debtor's assets and to collect against them.

Many debtors have no respect for their obligation to pay a debt, and engage in tactics to hinder or to delay a creditor's collection of a debt. In order to avoid paying a judgment, some debtors hide assets or transfer assets to friends, to relatives or to "shell" businesses or corporations for nothing, or for a fraction of the true value of the assets. Some debtors misrepresent their assets, or the value of their assets, in order to avoid paying a debt or judgment. Many debtors, when pressed to pay a debt, suddenly come up with frivolous legal arguments as to why they should not have to pay the debt.

In many cases, it is not possible for a creditor to receive payment for goods or services unless a lawsuit is filed against the debtor. The first step of any lawyer or law firm in collecting a commercial debt, in most instances, should be to file a lawsuit and "reduce the debt to judgment." In many cases, obtaining a judgment for a client is only the first half of the battle. After a judgment is obtained, it must be collected. In some cases, creditors against whom a judgment has been entered voluntarily pay the judgment. In many other cases, once the judgment is entered by the court for the creditor, additional legal procedures must be aggressively used to collect the judgment or debt.
