Recovery System for Company Funds

Phase One

We hit the ground running within 24 hours of receiving an account. Immediate action is critical. Our first step is dispatching a series of four letters to the debtor via US Mail. We don’t stop there; we thoroughly skip-trace and investigate to secure the best financial and contact information available.

Our collectors are relentless, employing phone calls, emails, text messages, faxes, and more to reach a resolution. Expect daily attempts to contact the debtors during the initial 30 to 60 days. If these efforts don’t yield results, we’re ready to escalate to Phase Two, involving our network of affiliated attorneys.

We’re committed to a proactive approach, ensuring every avenue is explored in the pursuit of your company’s funds.

Phase Two

Once we escalate to Phase Two, our affiliated attorneys take the helm. Immediate action is key. The attorney’s first step is to send a demand letter on their letterhead, signaling the seriousness of the situation to the debtor. This is followed by persistent attempts to contact the debtor through calls, reinforcing the urgency of payment.

We understand the complexities of international trade and ensure that every action taken is within the legal frameworks of both the USA and Russia.

If these efforts do not yield results, we provide a detailed report outlining the challenges and our recommended course of action. This transparency ensures you’re informed at every turn.

Here’s a quick rundown of the attorney’s initial actions:

  1. Draft and send demand letter
  2. Initiate phone contact
  3. Provide a status report if unresolved

Phase Three

At the crossroads of Phase Three, we face critical decisions. We assess the viability of recovery and provide clear recommendations. If prospects are dim, we advise closure with no fees due. Conversely, should litigation seem promising, we lay out the path ahead.

Litigation requires weighing the costs against potential recovery. Here’s a snapshot of what to expect financially:

Upfront Legal Costs Range
Court Costs $600 – $700

Should you opt for legal action, these costs are your initial investment towards reclaiming what’s owed. If litigation doesn’t pan out, rest assured, you owe us nothing further.

We’re committed to transparency and efficiency at every stage. Your trust in our process is paramount.

When we tackle fewer than ten claims, our rates reflect the intensity of our efforts. We’re committed to maximizing your recovery, while ensuring our fees are justified by the results. For claims not yet a year old, we charge 30% of the amount collected. Older accounts demand more work, so the rate rises to 40%.
