Commercial collections in Jacksonville Florida

Commercial collections can be a complicated area of law. While consumer debts are usually straightforward and involve written contracts, commercial claims may be based upon express contracts, both written and verbal, or contracts implied in law. Other claims may be equitable, rather than contractual in nature, such as unjust enrichment.

When business relationships break down, the resultant disputes often involve high-dollar and even high-profile commercial collection claims. With so much at stake, a successful commercial collections effort may be a “make or break” proposition for a client. When results matter, it is important to work with an experienced legal professional who is capable of identifying critical legal issues to maximize the possibility and amount of recovery for his clients.

Commercial Collections In Jacksonville Florida

The federal and Florida Fair Debt Collection Practices Acts govern consumer debt collection efforts in Jacksonville. Commercial collection professionals in the city aren’t governed by these acts but they must comply with the Florida Commercial Collection Practices Act found in Part V of Chapter 559, Florida Statutes. The relevant statutes outline strict registration and operational guidelines for commercial collections professionals. As a member of the Florida Bar, Attorney McCorvey has earned exemption from registration compliance. Nonetheless, commercial collection methods are not unfettered. Unethical collection practices may subject a creditor to a counterclaim for defamation or invasion of privacy.
