Are you owed money, and the company or person who owes it to you is avoiding you or simply won’t pay?
You may have entered into an agreement with someone and are now getting the silent treatment. Or, you may owe someone money under a contract, but the other party has not held up their end of the bargain. Either way, you may have legal remedies available to you that can help you with your collection or defense efforts.
As a business owner or service provider, you probably have had to face debtors who refuse to pay the money owed to you. On the other hand, you may have been on the receiving end of aggressive collection efforts for debts you truly believe are not owed to the other party. Whichever side you are on, you may wish to have a lawyer intervene to avoid making a bad debt collection situation worse. This may include have an experienced attorney draft a demand letter or negotiate a favorable settlement.
LITIGATION AND ARBITRATION
Sometimes, a debtor will simply refuse to pay, or a creditor may appear to never back down. In these situations, litigation or arbitration may be necessary. When you are owed a payment based on a contractual or other obligation, you may have more than one legal remedy available to you. If you are sued for a debt you are claimed to owe, a skilled business attorney can present the various defenses and options that may be available.
