Collections Law

Debt collection law is a complicated, intricate, and heavily-regulated practice area, but the experienced attorneys at Drew Eckl & Farnham can capably centralize sophisticated collection activity with a true litigation firm.

The result is a full service approach that affords reduction in overhead, vendor management and auditing costs, and compliance risks. Adept creditors’ rights representation can help you or your business reduce delinquency, increase recovery times, improve revenue, and minimize losses—all at a rate that’s cost-efficient and reliably effective. 

Collections Law for All Commercial Lenders

Collectors may fall victim to suits and settlements, and because individuals with debts in collections are protected by governmental organizations, they may have extra protections available—which means agencies and corporations need to be able to collect on their debts without impeding on the rights of individuals.

Our collection and recovery platform ranges from traditional internal collection methods to a full litigation approach, allowing you to streamline collection activity and maximize your return on investment. Drew Eckl & Farnham proudly represent global financial lending institutions, commercial lenders, and retail lenders with a broad range of industry-specific services, including:

  • Consumer Accounts
  • Commercial Accounts
  • Troubled Assets
  • HELOC
  • Secured Debt
  • FDCPA Defense
  • FCRA Defense
  • State Consumer Protection Defense

In a variety of legal matters throughout the country, we advise individuals and corporations about protecting their rights, no matter the size of their operation. If you’re a business owner, a sole proprietor, or another corporate entity attempting to pursue the lawful collection of commercial debt, we can help.
