BITE VS. BARK
As a law firm, we do not resort to the disreputable tactics that have given debt collection a bad name. As we can recover full interest and collection costs from a suit- worthy delinquent customer, we help your customer pay voluntarily or simply obtain and enforce judgment. No empty threats. No tricks. No fuss.
We generate thank-you notes, not complaints.
CONTINGENCY-BASED DEBT COLLECTION
We charge you no fee unless we recover money for you. No worrying about our hourly rates. No worrying if you are throwing good money after bad.
Our fee is a share of what we recover for you.
ACCESS TO JUSTICE
We expertly recover debts for banks and other large credit granters. But what about smaller creditors? We offer access for you as a small credit granter to the same sophisticated law firm contingency fee debt collection services we supply to our largest clients.
Pioneering Law Firm Contingency-Fee Collections with ScotiaBank
We were impressed with the results he achieved in the pilot we did with him. The collection agencies we usually used for the files assigned him regularly settled the claims for a discount and often generated complaints from our customers whose business we hoped to win back when times were better for them. On files agencies would have compromised, Todd recovered not only 100 percent of the amount owing, but also collection costs...
When Todd approached me, I offered him a trial as one of the firms we used. A year into the scheduled 18-month pilot, he had delivered impressive results. His firm was collecting two to three times as much as the average of the other four law firms we used in Ontario. We dismissed the lowest performing law firm, giving all its business to Todd’s firm. At the end of the 18 months, we boosted Christensen Law Firm’s share. . . to 80 percent, the maximum we will allow.
Collectrite Credit Bureau Collections referred our office to the Christensen Law Firm after recovering $42,000 of a $140,000 delinquent debt owed to us by a commercial customer. Due to the poor results that we had in the past with paying lawyers by the hour, we were leaning towards writing off the remainder of the debt. Mr. Christensen put his money where his mouth is and offered to work on a contingency fee basis and charge only for upfront court costs. They assumed we were paying Mr. Christensen by the hour and would fold, but he was true to his word and didn’t charge any hourly fees; just a percentage of what he recovered. Mr. Christensen first won a motion for summary judgment on our behalf in Superior Court. Christensen Law Firm recovered $117,000 on our original debt of $98,000. Using Christensen Law Firm not only obtained the money that was owing to us; but it also gave us the satisfaction to see someone who had lied to us, cheated us and made false accusations against us; be held accountable and proven wrong in court.
