We handle collections for businesses and banks quickly and deftly to capture value whenever possible. We provide guidance to your in-house collection personnel, implement systematic collection strategies to efficiently obtain judgments on your behalf, and we are experienced in a wide range of post-judgment collection procedures (garnishments, levies, creditor’s bills, sheriff sales, foreclosures, UCC sales, etc.) and know how and when to utilize the proper collection tools at your disposal. We frequently provide clients with services relating to workouts and bankruptcy, enabling them to collect funds in situations where recovery would be otherwise doubtful.
Succession & Dissolution
We can assist you with succession planning, generational transfers, split-ups, dissolutions, executive exits, restructuring and workouts, and bankruptcy services.
We can spend time on-site at your business to understand and assess the values, environment, and people that shape your business – and the needs that will affect your bottom line.
We focus on serving small, privately-owned business enterprises, including start-ups, family-owned businesses, mid- to large-sized entities, suppliers and service providers, and affiliates. We can help you develop a sound business strategy and find practical solutions to multi-faceted business problems.
