Negotiate a Debt Settlement Like a Pro

Debt Negotiation Lawyers

Negotiation can be an art form. With the right access to legal advice and guidance, you can have the legal support you need to seek resolution of business-related debts. 

Debt Negotiations

Here are things to consider during debt settlement negotiations: 

  1. The circumstances causing the debtor to default on their obligation
  2. An appropriate opening lump sum offer and your bottom line number
  3. The broader terms and conditions of the settlement agreement
  4. What paperwork you should have the debtor sign after a successful negotiation

Negotiation strategy may be different for each debtor you deal with. Rather than stress and guess, join LegalShield and a provider attorney can advise you on the best course of action and help you with the debt negotiation process.

Debt Relief

If you’re looking to resolve an overwhelming debt, it might be worth negotiating to offer some level of debt relief and collecting on a lesser amount rather than having to resort to a collection agency or lawsuit. Depending on the debtor’s financial situation, you can arrange for a lump sum or monthly payments on a reduced amount to ensure that you receive at least some of what you’re owed without having to escalate the situation.

What Terms Should You Consider During the Settlement Process?

There are several factors to weigh when you’re considering settlement to determine the financial amounts and other terms upon which you’re willing to settle.

  • Does the debtor owe you for a physical product or for services rendered?
  • Have you fully or only partially delivered under the terms of your agreement?
  • What were the hard or actual costs to deliver the product or service?
  • What is the nature of your relationship with the debtor? Do you want it to continue?

Consulting with an attorney experienced in debt negotiation is a great way to define what would be  an acceptable settlement. Also, with a LegalShield membership, you can have your provider debt negotiation attorney help you draft the appropriate settlement paperwork.
