Multiplying Defendants (To Increase Collectibility)

Donna Brown, August 2004


Scope of Article

Accounts referred for collection, as well as any claim that makes the basis for a suit for monetary relief, come to your office in many forms. Often, in collection matters, it may only consist of a summary statement of account, addressed to "ABC Company, attn: accounts payable." The debtor entity and the potential liable parties are not apparent from the face of the documents. This paper is directed to analyzing claims with the intent to multiply the defendants to increase collectability. Many of the topics addressed in this paper were "lifted" with permission from the Texas Collection Manual (3rd ed. 2000) published by the State Bar of Texas. Note: This article was last updated in 2004.
