We assist both creditors and debtors with outstanding debt issues.
If you operate or own a business, chances are high that you will be forced to deal with insolvency, excessive debts, uncollectible accounts, cash flow problems, or similar financial issues. The laws that pertain to these matters are numerous and complex, and they can have a significant and lasting impact on you and your organization. At Gates Wise Schlosser & Goebel, we have years of experience representing both creditors and debtors in these kinds of issues. Our clients have included banks and other financial institutions, individuals, partnerships, and corporations. We are well-versed in those laws that are useful in collecting accounts, as well as those that protect consumers and businesses from unfair collection procedures.
We can assist you from start to finish.
We are comfortable and experienced in drafting contracts or other documents to establish and secure a promissory note or other obligation. Should an issue arise, we pride ourselves on being able to take a flexible, multifaceted approach in attempting to obtain a satisfactory outcome. Our strong understanding of the facts and the law, combined with our skilled and tested negotiating techniques, have proved successful in reaching beneficial resolutions for our clients. When a financial issue is beyond negotiating, we are just as comfortable in representing our clients in adversarial proceedings. We are confident advocates in court, and do not shy away from initiating litigation or other enforcement actions to collect on outstanding debts.
If the matter you are dealing with takes a turn into bankruptcy, we will still be by your side. Successful representation in bankruptcy takes specialized knowledge of the obscure bankruptcy rules and comfort with bankruptcy procedures to ensure the best possible outcome. We understand the ins and outs of the Bankruptcy Code and are comfortable with representing both creditors and debtors in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
We have obtained bankruptcy protection for multi-million dollar companies with complex and international debts, as well as small, one-owner businesses. We have successfully litigated all manner of bankruptcy issues including wage claims, mechanics liens, judgments, mortgages, security interests, tax deficiencies, repossessions and fraud claims. We have also used the bankruptcy court to protect our client’s interest in mortgaged or secured property and give them the fresh start they deserve.
