When you are owed a business debt, you want to take those actions that will ensure that you recover the full amount owed to you. While your position and your collection options may change depending on whether you are a secured creditor or a general unsecured creditor, as a creditor you have extensive rights, even in the event that the debtor has filed bankruptcy.
Once a debtor has defaulted on a debt, the law allows creditors various collection options, depending on each situation. These options include enforcing contracts through arbitration/mediation, obtaining judgments through litigation, levying and executing on judgments, setting up garnishments, conducting repossessions, and/or enforcing mechanic’s liens. As most creditors know, the process of collecting on a debt is oftentimes difficult and time-consuming. Because of this, a creditor fares better off with the assistance of an experienced attorney.
