Counsel of Good Value: Ziegler Metzger's Motto Since 1952

Protecting Ohio Businesses And Creditors In Collections Matters

The law firm of Ziegler Metzger LLP is dedicated to providing Counsel of Good Value to banks, financial institutions and commercial firms that need assistance recovering secured commercial loans and other business debts. We also provide loan documentation services for banks.

A mid-sized law firm striving continually for efficiency, we provide services that equal or exceed those available from our larger competitors, and we do so at roughly three quarters of the cost. Our attorneys have a tremendous amount of collective experience. Our law firm has been selected for inclusion in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.

Bankruptcy Proceedings

As part of our commercial collections practice, we help creditors litigate claims to collect debts after debtors have gone into bankruptcy. This involves securing relief from automatic stays and from discharge injunctions. We also defend against claims by trustees and debtors-in-possession to recover fraudulent conveyances and preferential transfers.

In addition, we represent creditors in claims where real estate leases are part of the debtor’s. We petition the court to get the property out of bankruptcy so that the client can pursue collection actions more strongly.

Commercial Workouts And Foreclosures

Creditors need to get the most out of the credit they extend. In some cases, it is best to use every legal means available to collect the outstanding assets from the debtor. But in other cases, it is advantageous to discuss alternative means of satisfying a debt, especially when the debtor simply lacks the funds to cover a debt.

Our lawyers discuss workouts and foreclosures with creditors to help them determine the best way to proceed under their circumstances, and we represent creditors in negotiations and litigation involving workouts and foreclosures.

Developing Durable Relationships with Clients

Ziegler Metzger has enjoyed steady growth since being founded in large part because most new clients end up becoming long-term clients. Our attorneys are accessible to clients and provide personal, individualized service when dealing with commercial collections or any other legal matter. You will get to know your lawyer and your lawyer will get to know you.
