Recovery System for Exported Goods to Russia

Phase One: Initial Recovery Process

In the first phase of our recovery system, we hit the ground running. Within 24 hours of initiating the process, we deploy a multi-channel approach to contact the debtor. This includes the dispatch of the first of four letters and a comprehensive skip-tracing to gather the most up-to-date financial and contact information.

Our collectors are relentless, making daily attempts to reach a resolution through phone calls, emails, text messages, and faxes. The goal is clear: to secure payment or reach a settlement that satisfies all parties involved.

Persistence is key. We maintain a high frequency of contact attempts during the first 30 to 60 days, ensuring that the debtor is aware of the seriousness of the situation.

If these efforts do not yield results, we’re prepared to escalate to Phase Two, involving legal action and attorney involvement. Our strategy adapts as needed, always focusing on recovering your funds efficiently and effectively.

Phase Two: Legal Action and Attorney Involvement

Once we escalate to legal action, our affiliated attorneys step in with full force. Their first move is to draft a demand letter, clearly stating the debt owed to you. This letter, on official law firm letterhead, carries significant weight.

Simultaneously, the attorney’s team begins persistent attempts to contact the debtor. Phone calls complement the demand letters, ensuring the debtor feels the pressure from all sides. If these efforts don’t yield results, we’re transparent about the challenges and guide you towards the next step.

We’re committed to clear communication. If the path to recovery becomes rocky, we’ll lay out the options, including the potential for litigation.

Should litigation be the recommended route, you’ll face a decision. Here’s a quick breakdown of potential costs:

  • Court costs and filing fees: $600 – $700 (varies by jurisdiction)

Remember, these upfront costs pave the way for legal action to recover your funds. If litigation doesn’t succeed, you owe us nothing further. It’s a no-win, no-fee assurance that aligns our interests with yours.

Phase Three: Recommendations and Litigation

At this juncture, we face a critical decision. If the likelihood of recovery is low, we advise closing the case, incurring no further costs. Conversely, should litigation seem viable, we must weigh the potential benefits against the upfront legal expenses, typically ranging from $600 to $700.

We stand by a transparent fee structure, ensuring you pay only for successful collections. Our rates are competitive, reflecting the age and amount of the claim, as well as the volume of cases submitted.

Here’s a quick glance at our fee schedule:

  • For 1-9 claims:

    • Under 1 year: 30%
    • Over 1 year: 40%
    • Under $1000: 50%
    • With attorney: 50%
  • For 10+ claims:

    • Under 1 year: 27%
    • Over 1 year: 35%
    • Under $1000: 40%
    • With attorney: 50%

Remember, if litigation does not result in recovery, you owe us nothing. It’s a partnership where we shoulder the risk together, ensuring our interests are aligned with your success.
