Debt Recovery Tactics for Small Manufacturing Businesses

Thorough Investigation and Assessment

Before taking action, a thorough investigation is crucial. Gather all facts and assess the debtor’s assets to gauge recovery likelihood. If prospects are dim, consider closing the case to avoid unnecessary expenses.

Decisions post-assessment are pivotal. Choose wisely between litigation and standard collection activities like calls and emails.

Here’s a breakdown of potential recovery recommendations:

  • Closure of the case: If recovery seems unlikely, no fees are owed.
  • Litigation: If legal action is chosen, upfront costs will apply. These range from $600 to $700, depending on jurisdiction.

Remember, the choice between litigation and continued collection efforts will impact both costs and potential recovery.

Recommendation for Recovery

Upon thorough investigation, our firm will present you with a critical decision point. If the likelihood of debt recovery is low, we advise closing the case, incurring no cost to you. Conversely, should litigation be the recommended path, you face a choice.

Opting out of legal action allows for withdrawal of the claim at no charge, or continuation of standard collection efforts. Choosing litigation necessitates upfront legal fees, typically between $600-$700, based on the debtor’s location. These fees cover court costs and filing expenses, initiating a lawsuit to recover all owed monies, including legal action costs.

Should litigation prove unsuccessful, rest assured, you owe nothing further to our firm or affiliated attorney.

Our fee structure is competitive and varies with the number of claims and age of accounts. Here’s a concise breakdown:

  • For 1-9 claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 30%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 40%
    • Accounts under $1000: 50%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%
  • For 10+ claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 27%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 35%
    • Accounts under $1000: 40%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%

It is essential to weigh the potential costs against the likelihood of successful recovery when considering litigation.

Litigation Consideration

When recovery efforts through standard collection activities fail, litigation may be the next step. Deciding to proceed with legal action requires careful consideration of potential costs and outcomes.

Upfront legal costs are a reality of litigation. These can include court costs and filing fees, typically ranging from $600 to $700. It’s crucial to assess the debtor’s assets and the likelihood of recovery before incurring these expenses.

Should litigation prove unsuccessful, the case will be closed, and no further fees will be owed to the firm or affiliated attorney.

Here’s a breakdown of potential collection rates:

  • Accounts under 1 year in age: 30% or 27% of the amount collected.
  • Accounts over 1 year in age: 40% or 35% of the amount collected.
  • Accounts under $1000.00: 50% or 40% of the amount collected.
  • Accounts placed with an attorney: 50% of the amount collected.

The decision to litigate should not be taken lightly. It is a path reserved for when other avenues have been exhausted and the probability of debt recovery justifies the investment.
