Thank you for your question.

Are you planning on setting up a business which purchases judgments or is this a one-off arrangment?

I am looking to start a Judgment Recovery Business in Tennessee.

Thanks for your response.

Yes, you must obtain a collection service license.

See Tenn. Code Ann. § 62-20-102 (definition of collection services). This is in the Tennessee Collection Services Act.
