Overview: Collecting unpaid debts on a project - what are your remedies? When requests for payment prove unsuccessful, the next step is a strongly worded letter from your legal counsel. This demand will often inform the debtor that a legal action will be commenced unless payment is received by a certain date. What are the possible remedies for payment - and how can the parties to the project protect themselves?
