Commercial Collection Litigation

Our firm assists a wide variety of commercial interests to pursue their claims against business entities and associated guarantors who fail to satisfy delinquent accounts and similar obligations. Working with national and local collection agencies and direct creditors, we have developed processes and protocols to attempt to resolve accounts receivable in an efficient, compliant, and professional manner.

When litigation is required, we are tenacious and ethical advocates, whether in the courtroom, in settlement negotiations or in mediation.

BUSINESS TO BUSINESS COLLECTION LITIGATION

We assist commercial entities across a broad spectrum of industries in recovering claims against New York based business entities and associated guarantors who fail to satisfy delinquent accounts for goods and/or services provided and similar obligations. Our efforts include pursuing the underlying claims in New York Courts and enforcement of resultant judgments utilizing the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules and our firm’s experience in liquidating commercial claims.

PREMIUM AUDIT DEFICIENCY COLLECTION

We assist insurers nationwide in recovering deficiencies from their New York based insureds resulting from annual premium audits.  These efforts include pursuing the underlying claims in New York courts and enforcing resultant judgments accordingly.

AUTO AND PROPERTY DAMAGE SUBROGATION

We routinely assist insurance carriers and self-insureds to identify and pursue responsible third parties to recover amounts paid for claims to or on behalf of their insureds. Property damage litigation, as well as additional personal injury protection (APIP) subrogation and covered vs. non-covered scenarios, can result in significant recoveries.  We have extensive experience in representing insurers and self-insureds in these instances.  Our firm also confirms arbitration awards and enforces the resultant judgments.  Our subrogation efforts draw upon our knowledge base in enforcing judgments across a wide variety of commercial industries in the State of New York.

DOMESTICATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGN/OUT OF STATE JUDGEMENTS

Occasionally, litigants obtain judgments in one state, only to discover that the assets available for enforcement are located in the State of New York.  In these instances, we work with out of state judgment creditors to domesticate their foreign/out of state judgments in the State of New York.  Upon domestication, we utilize the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules to attempt to liquidate the judgment. 

INSURANCE POLICY DEDUCTIBLE COLLECTION

We assist insurers as they attempt to recover deductibles owing from their insureds according to applicable underlying policy terms.  Our firm’s experience in liquidating commercial collection claims is routinely utilized in attempting to recover these amounts from insureds who have received the benefit of the associated loss and/or expense payouts under their policies.
