Ever catch yourself having to look up an unfamiliar collection or legal term on Google or Wikipedia? We know how you feel, and we’re here to help! Even if you’ve used our Terminology Page before, you’ll want to check out the “new expanded” version; as we’ve added lots more terms that are specific to the debt collection industry and to legal collections—all in one easy-to-access place!
The Terminology Page* on the NL Website has always been a valuable resource for our clients and other professionals who want to more easily understand the terms used in the collection industry and by collection attorneys. The newly updated Terminology Page can be found under Home » Industry Resources » Terminology ».
