  • Thorough investigation of debtor’s assets is crucial for determining the possibility of recovery.

Investigation and Recovery Process

Thorough Investigation of Debtor’s Assets

Before any recovery action is taken, a thorough investigation of the debtor’s assets is crucial. This initial step ensures that all subsequent efforts are grounded in a solid understanding of the debtor’s financial situation. Our process includes skip-tracing and utilizing the best financial and contact information available.

Recovery is more likely when informed by accurate data. The investigation phase is designed to gauge the feasibility of debt recovery and to inform the decision on whether to proceed with legal action or to recommend closure.

The outcome of this investigation is pivotal, guiding the strategic approach to either escalate the matter or to cease further action.

The following table outlines the competitive collection rates provided by DCI, which are contingent on the age and amount of the account, as well as the number of claims:

Claims Submitted Accounts < 1 Year Accounts > 1 Year Accounts < $1000 Attorney Placed Accounts
1-9 30% 40% 50% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40% 50%

DCI provides efficient debt recovery services for U.S.A.-Thailand medical trade, offering a three-phase recovery system and competitive rates. Strongly recommended over costly litigation.

Recommendation for Recovery or Closure

Upon concluding the investigation, our firm presents a pivotal recommendation. If recovery seems unlikely, closure is advised, sparing you further costs. Conversely, should litigation appear viable, a decision looms. Opting out incurs no fees, while legal pursuit necessitates upfront costs, typically $600.00 to $700.00.

Our recovery system for agricultural exports to Thailand involves three phases: Initial Recovery, Legal Action, and Recommendations. Costs range from $600.00 to $700.00 for legal action.

The choice to litigate triggers a cascade of actions, including court filings and attorney engagement. Should litigation falter, the case concludes, absolving you of additional financial obligations. Below is a summary of our competitive collection rates:

  • For 1-9 claims:
    • Accounts under 1 year: 30%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 40%
    • Accounts under $1000.00: 50%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%
  • For 10+ claims:
    • Accounts under 1 year: 27%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 35%
    • Accounts under $1000.00: 40%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%

Options for Legal Action

When the path to recovery narrows, legal action becomes a pivotal decision point. Deciding whether to litigate hinges on the balance between potential gain and the upfront costs involved. If litigation is deemed viable, clients face initial fees, typically ranging from $600 to $700, which cover court costs and filing fees. These expenses are a necessary investment to initiate a lawsuit aimed at recouping the full amount owed, including the cost of legal action itself.

The choice to litigate is a strategic one, influenced by the debtor’s assets and the likelihood of successful recovery. It’s a calculated risk, with the potential for significant returns or the closure of the case with no additional fees owed.

DCI’s competitive collection rates ensure that the decision to proceed with legal action is cost-effective. Here’s a snapshot of our rates for various scenarios:

Claims Quantity Account Age Collection Rate
1-9 Claims Under 1 yr 30%
1-9 Claims Over 1 yr 40%
10+ Claims Under 1 yr 27%
10+ Claims Over 1 yr 35%

Should you opt against litigation, you may withdraw the claim without owing our firm or our affiliated attorney. Alternatively, we can continue standard collection activities, such as calls and emails, to pursue the debt.

Collection Rates and Recovery System

Competitive Collection Rates

In the realm of US-Thai machinery trade, competitive collection rates are pivotal. Our firm offers a tiered rate structure, ensuring affordability and efficiency in recovering payments. For instance, accounts under one year of age are subject to a 30% fee upon collection, while older accounts incur a 40% fee. Smaller claims under $1000 are levied a 50% fee, reflecting the increased effort required for such recoveries.

Number of Claims Accounts < 1 Year Accounts > 1 Year Accounts < $1000
1-9 30% 40% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40%

Our rates are designed to be flexible, adapting to the volume and age of claims, which allows for a more tailored approach to each unique case. This structure is particularly beneficial for businesses involved in agricultural exports, where margins can be tight and efficiency is key.

With our competitive rates, we aim to maximize your recovery while minimizing your expenses. Our goal is to provide a cost-effective solution for the often complex issue of non-payment in international trade.

3-Phase Recovery System

The 3-Phase Recovery System is a structured approach to reclaiming unpaid debts in the machinery trade between the USA and Thailand. Phase One kicks off within 24 hours of account placement, initiating a barrage of communication attempts including letters, calls, and electronic messages. Daily efforts persist for 30 to 60 days, aiming for a swift resolution.

In the event of non-resolution, Phase Two escalates the matter to our network of affiliated attorneys. They employ a combination of legal letters and persistent calls to pressure the debtor into settling the debt.

Should these efforts prove fruitless, Phase Three presents a critical juncture. Here, the path diverges based on the likelihood of debt recovery. Closure is advised when prospects are dim, sparing clients further costs. Conversely, if litigation appears viable, clients face a decision on whether to advance to legal action, with upfront costs detailed and transparency in potential outcomes.

Our competitive collection rates ensure that you only pay for successful recoveries, with percentages scaled to the age and size of the account, as well as the number of claims.

Phase One: Initial Recovery Steps

Upon initiating Phase One, swift action is taken to address non-payment issues. Within 24 hours of account placement, a multi-channel approach is employed:

  • A series of four letters is dispatched via US Mail to the debtor.
  • Comprehensive skip-tracing and investigation are conducted to secure optimal financial and contact data.
  • Persistent contact attempts are made through phone calls, emails, text messages, and faxes.

Daily engagement with the debtor is crucial during the first 30 to 60 days. This period is pivotal for achieving a resolution without escalating to legal proceedings. If these efforts do not yield results, the transition to Phase Two is immediate, involving our network of affiliated attorneys.

The goal is clear: to recover payments efficiently while maintaining the integrity of the US-Thai agricultural machinery trade. Our methods are designed to be assertive yet professional, ensuring the best possible outcome for our clients.

Legal Action and Costs

Decision to Proceed with Legal Action

When the decision to proceed with legal action is made, it marks a critical juncture in the recovery process. The choice carries financial implications, with upfront legal costs required to initiate proceedings. These costs typically range from $600 to $700 and cover court fees, filing charges, and other related expenses. Upon payment, our affiliated attorney will file a lawsuit to recover all monies owed, including the cost of litigation itself.

Should litigation prove unsuccessful, the case will be closed, and clients are not held liable for further charges from our firm or the affiliated attorney.

Our competitive collection rates ensure that the decision to litigate is cost-effective. The rates are structured based on the age of the account, the amount owed, and the number of claims. For instance, accounts under one year incur a 30% fee on the amount collected, while older accounts or those placed with an attorney have a 50% fee.

The decision to litigate is not taken lightly. It is the culmination of a thorough investigation into the debtor’s assets and the viability of recovery. If the likelihood of recovery is deemed low, we may recommend case closure, sparing clients from unnecessary expenses.

Upfront Legal Costs

Choosing to proceed with legal action in the US-Thai machinery trade dispute involves upfront legal costs. These costs cover court fees, filing fees, and other related expenses, typically ranging from $600 to $700. It’s a crucial investment for enforcing your rights and attempting to recover what is owed.

Cost breakdown:

  • Court costs
  • Filing fees
  • Attorney fees for filing the lawsuit

The decision to invest in litigation is pivotal, weighing the potential recovery against the initial outlay.

Remember, if litigation does not result in recovery, the case will be closed with no additional fees owed. This no-recovery, no-fee structure aligns our interests with yours, ensuring we are committed to the success of your case.

Failure of Litigation and Closure

When litigation fails to secure payment, the path forward narrows. Closure becomes the pragmatic choice. At this juncture, clients face no further financial obligations to our firm or affiliated attorneys. The ‘No Recovery No Fee’ policy ensures that unsuccessful litigation does not add to your financial burden.

Closure does not equate to defeat. It represents a strategic decision to minimize losses and reallocate resources more effectively. Consider the following steps post-closure:

  • Review the case for any possible overlooked avenues.
  • Analyze the process to identify improvements for future cases.
  • Reassess credit policies to prevent recurrence.

The closure of a case is a tough decision, but it is made with the client’s best interests in mind, ensuring no additional costs are incurred.

DCI’s commitment to competitive rates and secure debt recovery remains steadfast, even when faced with the challenges of non-payment in international trade.
