Good businesses are built on relationships and nothing can damage those relationships like failing to pay for services or products. Attorneys at FLG take a proactive approach and try to preserve the business relationship while seeking just payments for services and products provided by our clients. Nevertheless, some relationships cannot be preserved, and litigation becomes necessary. When it does, FLG Attorneys are prepared and experienced to litigate even the most complex commercial collection matters.
We approach every commercial collection matter with the same goal, preserve the business relationship. This process begins with having a well drafted contract before engaging in a commercial relationship. By addressing all the terms of the relationship before the relationship begins, businesses avoid unexpected outcomes, or broken relationships that can result from ambiguities or unspoken terms. Our Attorneys have extensive experience negotiating business contracts and addressing such ambiguities, and if collections for services or products becomes an issue, we look first to structure payment agreements that preserving the business relationship while securing our clients rights.
