Our Business Is Taking Care Of Yours

A part of our civil litigation practice is dedicated to helping companies ensure their customer debt remains manageable. For many businesses, a financial crisis can arise when internal debt collection strategies fail. At Tharrington Smith, we represent small businesses and other entities to find cost-effective solutions to recover money owed from consumers and other businesses. We understand how cash flow crises arising from customer debt can affect your business’s future. Our lawyers offer cost-effective debt collection strategies to protect your company’s bottom line.

We will walk you through the process, from beginning to end. One of the best ways to manage credit is on the front end with a well-drafted credit application and personal guaranty. We provide counsel on all aspects of debt collection and credit reporting, such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

If you need to retain the services of an attorney to collect a debt, we are here to help. We can customize our collection strategy to suit the needs of any business. Our debt collection attorneys represent a wide range of clients, such as materials suppliers, general contractors, and engineering firms – just about any business providing service or supplies credit to their clients. From demand through negotiation, litigation to judgment, and judgment to collection, we leverage debtor assets and offer a wide variety of enforcement strategies to ensure the most cost-effective way to collect what is owed to your business.
