It can be frustrating when you are legally owed money but for some reason you can’t collect. The first step is sending a demand letter on our letterhead to show that you are serious about collecting the debt. Until we get involved, the debtor sometimes thinks that you won’t escalate the matter and may cut your losses. Once we get involved, they realize that you have raised the stakes. In many cases, the debtor will be responsible for your legal fees as well so that you are not out of pocket.
Demand letters are also useful as ‘cease and desist’ letters where someone is infringing on your legal rights (whether it be using your trademark or failing to live up to some contractual obligation).
If it’s time to get serious, please give us a call.
