Debt negotiations


Here are things you may need related to debt settlement negotiations:

1. The circumstances causing the debtor to default on their obligation

2. An appropriate opening 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 strategies may be different for each debtor you deal with. Rather than stress and guess, join LegalShield and a provider lawyer can advise you on the best course of action and help you with the debt negotiation process.

What terms should you consider when attempting to settle?


There are several factors that you can weigh to determine the financial numbers 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 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 a lawyer about debt negotiation is a great way to get clear about what may represent an acceptable settlement. Also, with a LegalShield membership, you can have your provider lawyer help you draft the appropriate settlement paperwork under the 25% discount from their hourly rate for business matters.

Have a lawyer negotiate a debt dispute for you

Keeping a cool head when you’re in the middle of a dispute over money is not easy. That said, remaining calm and being reasonable is essential for a positive outcome.

Whether your business is owed money or another entity is claiming you owe them money, having a lawyer handle the matter can not only help with negotiations, it can reduce your stress.

If you join LegalShield, contact your provider law firm and you can be on the phone with a provider lawyer. If appropriate, your lawyer can write a letter or make a call on your behalf to seek resolution of the situation for you at no additional cost beyond the membership fee.
