When a creditor makes the decision to extend credit, they are often relying on the accuracy of financial information provided by the borrower. When that information is false – and the borrower files for bankruptcy – there may be an argument for fraud. If they are not detected and no action is taken, these debts will not survive a bankruptcy and creditors permanently lose the right to collect. The bankruptcy attorneys at Weltman are trained to recognize and investigate fraudulent activity, and will always keep your best interests in mind.
Every file that is referred to the Weltman Bankruptcy Group undergoes a timely and thorough review before our professionals recommend an appropriate recovery plan. Our ability to uncover fraudulent activity and intentional tortious conduct – while acting in a timely manner – makes us your ideal recovery partner.
If we determine that circumstances require legal action, we will promptly file an adversary complaint requesting that the court not allow the fraudulently-obtained debt to be discharged. If warranted, we can also file an objection to the borrower’s entire discharge, or prove our case through a trial.
The Weltman Bankruptcy Group regularly conducts training sessions for our clients and is able to tailor our presentations to meet your needs. This includes in-depth training to provide your staff with the tools necessary to spot fraud issues in bankruptcy.
Through years of experience working hand-in-hand with our clients on fraud issues, we have several recovery programs ready-made for your portfolios. Our ability to analyze your bankrupt accounts and then triage those with the potential for non-dischargeability allows us to provide maximum efficiency while protecting your rights in the bankruptcy case.
