Commercial Collections & Creditor’s Rights

Promptly and efficiency managing collections is essential for an organization’s ability to maintain healthy financial operations. At HPLP, we help creditors navigate the challenges of collection through a variety of means aimed at maximizing their recovery while controlling costs. Our collection attorneys assist companies in assessing their options, evaluating the likelihood of recovery and deciding on a course of action consistent with their goals.

Our Commercial Collections/Creditor’s Rights practice group has extensive experience in all areas of debt collection, ranging from pre-litigation demands to post-judgment enforcement. When possible, we focus on finding solutions without resorting to litigation, thus saving our clients time and money.

Our attorneys maintain a focus on claim prevention by routinely advising our clients on avoiding uncollectable debt by reviewing and recommending improvements to their credit documentation, including preparing contracts, invoices, personal guarantees and other document forms to better protect your business.

HPLP also has the specific experience to effectively handle the unique aspects of construction collections, including filing and enforcing mechanic’s liens; and handling labor and material payment bond claims.

Should a creditor need help with bankruptcy cases, we can help them navigate through the system, as well as represent them in federal bankruptcy courts.
