Recovery System for Company Funds

Phase One

In the initial thrust of our Recovery System, we spring into action within the first 24 hours. Our multi-channel approach kicks off with the first of four letters, dispatched via US Mail to the debtor. But we don’t stop there; our team dives into skip-tracing and in-depth investigations to secure the most accurate financial and contact details.

Daily attempts to reach a resolution through phone calls, emails, text messages, and faxes are standard practice for the first 30 to 60 days. Our persistence is key to maximizing the chances of recovery before moving to the next phase.

We’re committed to a rigorous follow-up schedule, ensuring every avenue is explored in this crucial phase.

Should these efforts not yield the desired results, we seamlessly transition to Phase Two, engaging our network of affiliated attorneys to escalate the matter within the debtor’s local jurisdiction.

Phase Two

As we escalate our efforts in Phase Two, the case is handed over to a local attorney within our network. Immediate action is taken, with the attorney drafting a series of demanding letters on their official letterhead. This is coupled with persistent phone calls to the debtor, aiming to secure a resolution.

  • The attorney sends the first letter immediately.
  • Phone contact is initiated alongside the letter series.

If these intensified efforts still don’t yield results, we prepare to advise you on the potential hurdles and our suggested next steps. This is a critical juncture where we assess the viability of moving forward.

We remain committed to transparency and will communicate the complexities of your case, ensuring you’re informed for the decisive Phase Three.

Phase Three

At the crossroads of Phase Three, we face a critical decision. If our investigation suggests recovery is improbable, we advise closing the case, incurring no cost to you. Conversely, should litigation seem viable, the choice is yours. Opting out means no fees owed, while proceeding requires covering upfront legal expenses, typically $600-$700.

Litigation is a serious step. Upon your commitment, our affiliated attorney initiates legal proceedings to reclaim the full debt, including filing costs. Failure to recover funds post-litigation leads to case closure, with no financial obligation to our firm or attorney.

Our commitment to transparency extends to our fee structure, ensuring you’re informed at every juncture.

Here’s a snapshot of our collection rates:

  • For 1-9 claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 30%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 40%
    • Accounts under $1000: 50%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%
  • For 10+ claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 27%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 35%
    • Accounts under $1000: 40%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%

Debt Recovery Process

Initial Contact

Once we’ve identified a financial dispute, our initial contact is crucial. We reach out to the debtor with a clear message: resolve the matter amicably. This step is about opening lines of communication and setting the stage for negotiation. We use a mix of phone calls, emails, and letters to ensure our message is received.

Our approach is firm yet fair, emphasizing the importance of swift resolution. We aim to establish a dialogue and understand the debtor’s position. It’s not just about recovery; it’s about maintaining relationships for future telecom trade with Canada.

We believe in a resolution that benefits all parties involved, seeking a balance between firmness and flexibility.

If this initial contact does not yield results, we are prepared to escalate the matter. Our escalation process is as follows:

  • Review debtor’s response or lack thereof
  • Assess the feasibility of continued negotiation
  • Determine if legal action is the next appropriate step

Persistence and clarity are our guiding principles during this phase. We remain committed to recovering what is owed to our clients while upholding the integrity of the telecom trade.

Legal Action

When we’ve exhausted all amicable avenues, we pivot to legal action. The decision to litigate is critical, and we guide you through every step. If you choose to proceed, upfront legal costs are necessary, typically ranging from $600 to $700. These cover court costs, filing fees, and other expenses associated with filing a lawsuit.

We’re transparent about the potential outcomes. Success isn’t guaranteed, but we strive for the best possible resolution. If litigation doesn’t yield results, you owe us nothing further.

Here’s a quick breakdown of potential fees:

  • Court Costs & Filing Fees: $600 – $700
  • Additional Legal Expenses: Varies

Remember, these costs are an investment towards recovering what’s owed to you. We’ll handle the complexities of the legal process, keeping you informed at every juncture.

Collection Rates

After exhausting all avenues of communication and negotiation, we arrive at the pivotal point of collection rates. Our success hinges on the ability to recover funds efficiently. We’ve structured our rates competitively, ensuring they are fair and aligned with industry standards.

Claims Submitted Accounts < 1 Year Accounts > 1 Year Accounts < $1000 Attorney Placed
1-9 30% 40% 50% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40% 50%

It’s crucial to remember that these rates are tailored to the volume and age of claims, reflecting our commitment to providing value to our clients.

In the event of litigation, upfront legal costs are necessary, typically ranging from $600 to $700. This investment facilitates the filing of a lawsuit to recover all monies owed. Should litigation prove unsuccessful, rest assured, you owe us nothing further.
