Overview

When chief financial officers, attorneys and business owners focus on debt collection - both consumer and business debts - their overall concern can be generally summarized in two short sentences: "What can I do legally?" and "Where do I find the answer?" Aspen Publishers' Complete Guide to Credit and Collection Law, 2007-2008 Edition is a comprehensive effort to answer these questions.

Recent years have produced as many significant changes in the credit and collection industry as Sarbanes-Oxley produced in Wall Street. Five separate and distinct types of legislation have emerged from Congress, all of which will impact not only on the extension of credit, but also on the collection of debts.

  • Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005
