Business collection: Consultant files suit seeking owed payment

Running a business is not an easy task, and it relies heavily on the cooperation of others, especially when work agreements have been made. Unfortunately, some Texas business owners may have more work cut out for them when clients or customers do not pay their outstanding balances. In some cases, legal action may be necessary when it comes to business collection.

One woman in another state is currently working toward obtaining payment owed to her. According to reports, she worked as a consultant on a sports complex project from Nov. 2017 through March 2018. She acted as the project's chief diversity officer during that time. However, she reportedly did not receive payment from the project's founders despite sending multiple invoices for payment.

One of the co-founders reportedly sent emails and text messages indicating that her payment was en route, but she never received compensation. A demand letter was sent to the project's founders, and the consultant attempted to negotiate a settlement. Unfortunately, those steps did not garner the desired outcomes. As a result, she has filed a lawsuit in efforts to obtain the money owed to her.

It can be disheartening and challenging to provide services for a person or company and not be properly compensated in return. As this case shows, it is sometimes necessary to file lawsuits in the pursuit of business collection. Though it may seem like a last resort to some Texas business owners, it may be the step necessary to ensure that payment and resulting damages are properly addressed.
