Featured Experience

Husch Blackwell recovers $350,000 of previously uncollectible assets for client

When a client came to Husch Blackwell with a judgment against an individual in their noncollectible asset category, Tim and his team dove into background research to identify assets that could be used toward collection of the judgment. Tim and his team conducted extensive discovery to identify the assets that would provide the highest return on investment for the client. After several days of hearings, the judge granted the requested release, allowing our client to recover over $350,000 – 85 percent of the previously uncollectible judgment.
