Debt Collection involves the legal process of collecting money due as well as payable for goods sold and delivered and/or for services rendered. Joselowitz & Andrews Attorneys are leading debt collection attorneys in Johannesburg and South Africa. We understand the typical stalling tactics of both local businesses as well as individuals. We know what measures need to be employed to enforce payment from debtors, so much so that international organisations have contracted our services. We ensure that our clients’ receive that which they are owed. The primary means of taking businesses to book is by declaring their insolvency such as their inability to pay their debts. Furthermore, those businesses that have been placed under liquidation can also be pursued for monies owed via the business’s directors and members in certain circumstances.
Liquidation and insolvency are areas of our debt collection expertise. We also deal with disputed and undisputed debt collections. A disputed collection is one in which the debtor has “grounds” to dispute the number of monies owed. However, many debtors that fail to make payments often have little or no excuse. In these situations, debtors (whether firms or individuals) will utilise stalling tactics, such as promising payment on a future date, denying the receipt of an invoice, creating a disingenuous “dispute” or even ignoring phone calls and emails. That’s where we, as specialist debt collection attorneys step in. Contact us for expert legal advice and swift action.
