Our debt collection law firm offers small businesses a variety of options to consider.  Commercial collection agencies are one way, but our collection attorney has discussed in past blogs the difference between a collection agency to collect past due accounts and a collection lawyer in a debt recovery law firm to collect your company’s past due account receivable.

Our Collection Attorneys Can Help Collect Past Due Account Receivable

Our firm has recently added a flat fee commercial demand letter for payment of debt.  Our clients were asking us for examples or templates of collection letters but, most found that a debt collection letter coming from a collection attorney was more effective than the company simply sending a letter demanding payment.  A company should send a demand letter for payment first, but after time passes it will become apparent when a company is simply stalling or cannot pay on the past due account.  If your company is interested in exploring our debt collection law firm’s flat fee letter to collect on past due accounts, feel free to visit our website.

Collection agencies typically have legal forwarding departments for debt collection accounts that the collection agency was unable to collect.  The collection agency maintains a network of debt collection attorneys that are retained by the collection agency to file lawsuits or send attorney demand letters demanding payment for money owed.  Once collection agencies forward an account to a collection lawyer the collection agency must charge a higher contingent fee upon collection.

 Collection Agencies Have Limitations

For most small businesses, having to engage in collecting past due accounts becomes frustrating. For small business owners cash flow is crucial to keeping the lights on and the business up and running.   Having to take the time and resources to attempt to collect past due accounts internally takes away from the time the business should be focusing on their core business.  There are commercial collection agencies to consider. But, perhaps a better alternative is utilizing debt collection law firms who focus their practice on representing business that are owed money. We have talked in past blogs about the limitations of using a collection agency to collect your company’s money.

Collection Agencies Are Not Licensed to Practice Debt Collection Law

A collection agency cannot hold themselves out as a  debt collection law firm nor can they legally practice debt collection law.  Collection agencies send a series of collection letters and then attempt to collect past due accounts by making debt collection telephone calls demanding payment.  Collection agencies also typically will charge a contingent collection fee between 25% to 40%.   If a lawsuit is required to sue a debtor for your money, the agencies typically will raise the contingent fee even higher.

 Collection Agency Litigation Departments Forward Claims from their Collection Agencies

A collection agency is not licensed to practice debt collection law. Collection agencies set up departments in their collection agency to forward accounts for collection of past due account receivables to commercial collection attorneys.  Our debt collection firm has established a division that gives credit managers the opportunity to forego using a collection agency and send their accounts for collection directly to our commercial debt collection law firm.

Collection Agencies  May  Not Be As Effective

Once your customer sees that you have retained a law firm to assist your company collect past due debt, the debtor will know that if arrangements are not made with your company for payment, litigation may be imminent.  Today, most debtors recognize that a collection agency cannot bring suit.  Collection agencies rely on commercial collection attorneys to bring suit on behalf of their collection agency clients.  The collection agency in effect is acting as a middleman. As a result, you end up paying a higher contingent fee.    By cutting out the collection agency you are eliminating the middle man and will save on contingency fees.

Collection Agency Collection Agencies Software

Collection Agency Collection Attorney Software

Whether you are a collection agency or a collection attorney in order to properly manage your work flow in a debt collection setting it is important to have debt collection software. Collection agencies and commercial collection law firms typically have a high volume of debt collection files. To manage these files without the assistance of a debt collection software program would almost be unheard of in the debt collection industry.

Our commercial collection law firm uses a web based software called Casetracker.   Casetracker software allows our debt collection professionals track thousands of commercial debt collection cases. Because it is web based it allows not only our commercial debt recovery staff but also our commercial debt collection clients to log in   from anywhere there is a web browser, including smart phones, to gain access to their files.

Collection Agencies and Collection Attorneys Use Debt Collection Software

Casetracker has different modules in place   to help manage the work flow. Our debt collectors have a different module from our customer service representatives. Each collection file maintains a separate accounting section so that when funds are collected from debtors, clients are easily able to track the amount collected, the contingent collection fee that our collection lawyers will retain and then the net proceeds of the collection that will be remitted back to the client.

Debt Recovery Firm

Collection Law Firm

Our commercial debt collection law firm was first introduced to Casetracker by a Florida commercial collection agency that had been using the software for several years.  Collection agencies have some different needs when it comes to debt collection software but, the similarities between what a commercial collection law firm and a commercial collection agency do are not that different. Casetracker was able to customize our debt collection software to our needs as we did not need some of the features that a commercial collection agency would utilize.

 

We are a commercial collection law firm based in Boca Raton, Florida. We would be happy to share our experience using Casetracker over the years in our office.  We welcome commercial debt collection claims directly from creditors and from collection agencies from all over the United States.

Collection Agencies Are Limited in the Scope of the Debt Collection  Services the Collection Agency Can Provide

Creditors need to recognize that collection agencies are limited in their ability to effective represent a client in that the collection agency does not hold a license to practice law.  Effective recovery of a past due account may sometimes require the filing of a lawsuit to make the debtor come to the table and pay the past due account.  Collection agencies also need to refer cases to debt collection attorneys. When the collection action has to refer the matter to a collection lawyer they typically charge the creditor a higher contingency fee.

Flat Fee Attorney Demand Letter for Payment

Our debt collection law firm has started a flat fee demand letter service that creditors may wish to consider before obligating their company to paying contingent fees upon collection.  Just like a collection agency our debt collection lawyers will draft an attorney demand letter seeking payment of the overdue account. Because the demand for payment is coming from a collection attorney rather than a commercial collection agency, the likelihood that the debtor will take the demand for payment more seriously increases.

 You May Save Money Using a Collection Lawyer

Because your account would already be with debt collection attorneys, if litigation was truly required to liquidate the past due account, there would be no need to forward the debt collection claim from a collection agency to our commercial collection law firm.  Your company would not to pay a higher contingent collection rate to the collection agency thus, saving your company money upon the recovery of your money.
