Kramer & Frank provides full service consumer and commercial collection litigation and dispute resolution services. We practice in state and federal trial and appellate courts in Missouri, Kansas and Southern Illinois. The firm represents a broad range of clients including local and national financial institutions, banks, credit unions, insurance providers and general trade creditors.
The Commercial Collection Litigation Group recognizes that clients’ interests and goals are different in each case. Some clients are best served by front-end negotiations before formal proceedings commence. Others require litigation. If so, Kramer & Frank’s Commercial Collection Litigation Group focuses on each client’s particular interests and rejects a cookie-cutter approach to collections-related litigation.
Kramer & Frank understands that most cases settle. In light of this, the Commercial Collection Litigation Group attorneys consider cases to be on parallel tracks: one focused on winning at trial and the other on placing the case in a favorable settlement position in each pretrial stage. The Group’s attorneys do not blindly posture and refuse to consider reasonable and common sense solutions -- we seek them out.
The Commercial Collection Litigation Group handles diverse litigation matters arising from or related to its collections litigation: the defense of counterclaims, including FDCPA claims; actions for the transfer of assets in fraud of creditors; interpleaders; disputed garnishments; and other general commercial litigation related to collections.
Depending upon the clients’ needs and the nature of the case, Kramer & Frank’s fee options include contingent fee arrangements, hourly billing and, in special circumstances, custom blended fee structures.
