CREDITORS’ RIGHTS AND BANKRUPTCY

In today’s economic climate, no business or lender can afford “bad debt”.  Our firm understands this and can work with you to help you collect the money owed to you, whether it be drafting a workout agreement with the debtor or suing to obtain a money judgment.  Our attorneys work in all matters of collections from repossession/replevin to the issuing of writs of attachment and garnishments.  We also have experience working with many banks and businesses in performing foreclosures, both judicial and power of sale.  We can also help you avoid the costs of collection by drafting agreements which reserve your right to recoup attorneys’ fees and costs should legal action be necessary to collect the money you are owed.

Creditors never want to hear that a customer or borrower has declared bankruptcy.  At Graves Smith Attorneys we represent creditors in all levels of bankruptcy in both Mississippi and Tennessee.  Our attorneys work in bankruptcy matters of all types including Chapter 7 and 13 individual debtor matters, to Chapter 11 and 12 debtor restructuring cases.  Our attorneys have experience with proofs of claim, reaffirmation agreements, lifting the automatic stay, objections to confirmation, adequate protection workouts, objections to discharge, assumption of executory contracts/leases, and a wide variety of other issues which may arise in the bankruptcy process.  We also have experience litigating complex commercial litigation matters in adversary proceedings before the bankruptcy courts.

In the modern business climate, issues with collections will always be an unfortunate part of the operation of your business whether it is as simple as money owed on an account or a business debtor with several secured assets.  At Graves Smith Attorneys we are here to advise you in each particular case and are mindful of the additional business costs associated with these matters.  If you have a problem with collecting money that is owed to you, or if someone who owes you money has declared bankruptcy, please contact one of our experienced attorneys to discuss how our firm may be able to assist you.
