Business Debt Collection

Collecting a delinquent debt from a business entity can be nearly impossible without the assistance of an attorney due to the complex and myriad laws which have been enacted to help protect debtors against collectors.  Our business debt collection attorneys balance client advocacy with careful adherence to debt collection laws, and work to help financially deprived businesses obtain the debts they are rightfully owed under the terms of a contract.

Business Dissolution

When businesses are no longer of interest to their owners, too often they are allowed to simply collect dust in a state of legal limbo.  However, if a business is never formally and legally dissolved, even in a defunct state it can still be subject to tax obligations, or vulnerable to unauthorized use of names, logos, or other attributes.  With a business dissolution attorney, you can rest assured that your business is securely dissolved, and free from any issues which might otherwise arise through neglect.

Breach of Contract

For a contract to be in breach, three guidelines must be satisfied.  First, a contract must exist.  Second, there must be a demonstrable and material breach of the terms of that contract.  Third, the breach of those terms must have resulted in substantial damages to the afflicted company.  Breach of contract is determined on a case-by-case basis and can be challenging to establish, and must be argued aggressively by a seasoned attorney in order to be decisively proven before a judge.

Contract Disputes

Breach of contract is not the only way a problem with a contract can manifest itself: contract disputes can be just as devastating.  A dispute may arise between businesses, between shareholders, between partners, or between employee and employer.  Common types of contract disputes involve non-compete agreements, partnership agreements, and disputes stemming from ambiguous contract language, or even a change in a company’s circumstances.  Whatever is causing your contract dispute, our attorneys have the experience to help resolve the conflict, and allow your business to continue moving forward financially.

At Berkowitz Klein, our attorneys have been practicing commercial litigation in Norristown and across southeastern Pennsylvania for nearly three decades.  Whatever legal issue your business is struggling with, we can help.  Call us today at (610) 889-3200 (ext. 1), or contact us online to arrange for a confidential legal consultation.
