I recently started on my first solo project for a .com and find that they owe me a very significant amount of money. They just down sized the operation and have given themselves a week to find a buyer. How do I get my money. I have subs who have paid for advertising for these folks and are really strung out and may have to declare bankruptcy because my client isn't paying.

I won't try to be a lawyer so until a professional lawyer decides to give you their professional opinion here, try http://www.lawdog.com/ and see if that website is of any help to you.
I would welcome seeing Fast Company looking into running an article regarding debt collection, considering the dotcom fallout since April 2000.

try guru.com-they had some great advice on this. nolo.com is even better-good, solid advice and resources.

Dan Pink addresses this briefly in the original Free Agent Nation article -- http://www.fastcompany.com/online/12/faproblems.html -- but it's advice is more before-the-fact than after. And we mention a debt collection firm -- http://www.frost-arnett.com/ -- in http:// www.fastcompany.com/online/36/kentucky.html
This is a tricky situation. Does the company have the money? Will it get the money? What happens to you if they don't and they don't?

You go to the company and STAY THERE until you get a satisfactory conclusion to your problem. If you do not - you - will - never - get - paid.
