Principled and efficient collection services for businesses of all sizes
Revenue is essential if your business is to maintain operations, so nonpayment can threaten your very existence. Business law attorneys at Lowther Johnson provide proven advice and take decisive action to resolve nonpayment issues under a variety of circumstances:
- Creditor representation in bankruptcy — Our experienced attorneys take an active role in representing creditors when their debtors file for bankruptcy. We participate in preference and avoidance litigation, discharge and dischargeability objections, and claims enforcement. We also assist with claims negotiation and confirmation of repayment plans, and we advise creditors on all remedies that are available to them, such as the use of involuntary bankruptcies and substantive consolidation of related debtors.
- Collections and judgment recovery — Our legal team also provides ongoing representation to creditors in collections actions. We advise clients on all facets of credit transactions and receivables management, including providing predefault lender counseling on rights and voluntary workouts. After default, we undertake judicial and nonjudicial foreclosures and provide a variety of aggressive yet cost-effective measures to preserve adequate security. These measures include prejudgment writs of attachment and other forms of injunctive relief, creditor assignments, and lien preservation.
- Landlord-tenant collections — Whenever necessary, we assist owners of residential and commercial real estate in collecting unpaid rent from tenants and in pursuing eviction proceedings.
When litigation proves unavoidable, we provide creditors with aggressive representation to enforce claims. In addition to assisting clients with all standard post-judgment remedies including garnishments, executions, and levies, we work diligently to investigate and uncover any fraudulent conveyances or debt that has been illegally hidden.
