Mississauga Litigators Helping Clients Manage and Enforce Debt Collection in Peel Region

For a business to run effectively and remain prosperous, it is important that all accounts owing to the business are paid in a timely matter. Outstanding debts can have a trickle-down effect on a business’s operations, interfering with payroll, lease or mortgage payments, or the payment of vendors.

Before outstanding debts can have a detrimental effect, it is important to seek representation by a firm with experience in debt collection actions. At Prudent Law, our litigation lawyers understand the importance of quick action in debt collection matters and will work to enforce your rights and collect your money effectively and efficiently. We are experienced arguing cases before all levels of court in Ontario, and also regularly represent clients in various methods of alternative dispute resolution. We will provide a detailed assessment of your case and advise on the best way to move forward in your circumstance.

Types of Relief Commonly Sought in Debt Collection Actions

Whether enforcing accounts payable, looking to collect money owing under a contract or realizing on a security, time is of the essence. It is important to act quickly to prevent the debtor from disposing of assets that could be applied toward their outstanding debt. Some of the common remedies we seek on behalf of clients to secure their interests in a debt collection action include:

Injunctive Relief: Where there is concern that a debtor will dispose of or transfer liquid assets to avoid a judgment, we will seek an injunction (known as a Mareva injunction) to freeze their assets and prevent the debtor from dispensing of any assets until the matter has been determined by a judge.

Norwich Order: In cases where the debtor’s assets are unknown, we can request a Norwich Order, which enables the creditor to obtain information from third parties, such as a bank, regarding the debtor’s finances and assets.

Certificate of Pending Litigation: In cases where the debtor owns real property and there is concern they might attempt to dispose of it or transfer the title before a court makes a determination with respect to the case, we can have a Certificate of Pending Litigation (CPL) placed on the property’s title. This will prevent the debtor from transferring the property until the CPL is removed, pending a final order by the court.
