What do we do if a customer owes us a lot of money and is past due by 45 days?

I’m talking $30k. This group in question is now harassing us because we took back some of their customers and are planning on stopping 100% sales with this group. We are playing nice guy to try and get our money back. Do we need to do that? What can we do? Is there anything this group can do to us if we just shut them down completley in terms of not selling to them and taking back customers.
