More Than 85 Years of Experience

Our International Trade Collection Group is comprised of experienced attorneys, collectors and support personnel with the proven ability to aggressively work files and service commercial accounts. We work hard to help you reduce delinquency, increase recovery, improve cash flow and minimize losses, all at a fair cost. By providing regular reports and insights on legal and recovery matters, we ensure claims assigned are worked in a timely and effective manner. Recognized as an industry leader, Weltman strives to provide clients of all sizes the full resources of the firm’s collection platform and power of the Weltman collection teams.

Our Initial File Review is Critical to Your Success

We will review each commercial account to identify the proper recovery stream. We can move a file directly into our front-end contingency collection team, send the file to our asset search department, or go directly to suit. This screening ensures your files are handled properly saving you time and money.

Comprehensive National Collections + Legal Strategy

Weltman has established a national litigation network of experienced attorneys to handle matters that fall outside our footprint state area, all across the United States. We remain actively involved with local counsel throughout the legal process and monitor the handling and reporting of cases, providing you consistent service and accountability in every state.

Unique Litigation Process Delivers Faster Results

Once we establish liability and determine whether recovery is possible, our experienced commercial team can often begin immediate resolution with a 10-day letter program and contacts to the commercial entity. We attempt to settle the claim prior to any litigation. Our goal is to expedite the litigation process to be as cost-efficient as possible, working with your customers to establish a sufficient settlement or proceed to judgment and execution.

Reporting and Communications

Weltman utilizes the Internet for e-mail and document transmission. Through our password-protected website, eClientNet, we provide access to your account, progress reports detailing account activity, performance statistics, inventory lists, and accounting information.

Not Afraid to Say “NO”

Rather than just processing your matters without looking at alternatives, we often come up with new ideas or approaches to your files. The knowledge we’ve gained from our years of experience allows us to propose and formulate a plan of action which may have not been previously considered. We work with our clients to keep their best business interests in mind. We don’t hesitate to make hard decisions, including advocating settlement when the costs outweigh the result. Don’t be surprised if we suggest alternatives that may be more cost-effective to your organization.
