    Debt Collection Litigation

    A common legal action is to recover monies owed by a delinquent debtor. Speed and timing are everything when it comes to suing and debt collection. HS Law lawyers have extensive experience litigating in BC Small Claims Court (Up to $35K) and the BC Supreme Court (Over $35K). Every situation is unique, and so are the legal tactics used in civil litigation.

    The longer a debt is outstanding, the lower your odds of recovery. This is especially true with limited commercial debtor companies who have never provided any personal guarantees on your debt. When a limited company is steadily sliding out of business, assets often have a way of disappearing. In British Columbia there is no Bulk Sales Act so a debtor company can sell off their assets, pay off the secured creditors and leave the unsecured creditors with nothing. If you should be in this situation you should immediately talk to an HS Law lawyer.

    Preventing Court Action

    One of the most cost effective services we offer is litigation prevention. One of the biggest problems with commercial debt collection is a lack of proper documentation, or paperwork. Many companies compound the problem by extending large credit lines without knowing the financial circumstances of their customer. There are many ways to reduce bad debt write offs with proper due diligence and agreements that protect your position, prevent financial catastrophes and expensive civil litigation.
    Sales and other transactions are the lifeline of any company. At HS Law we always look for ways a deal can be secured to reduce risk and the possibility of civil litigation.
