Our debt collection success formula – how we continue to be Europe’s no. 1 debt collection agency and law firm
As Europe’s leading debt collection law firm, we have helped over 24.000 companies across the globe. We aim to improve the payment behaviour of companies for small businesses and multinationals. We know that for a successful recovery, you cannot impose a standard one-size-fits-all model. We know that when solving a debt collection case, much more context is required. You have to understand the situation of the client, the relationship between our client and their debtors. This way, we determine the approach that will deliver you customised results. This is what we do differently:
Why hasn’t your debtor paid? – Doing a local database check
Our specialists never randomly pick up the phone and start calling your debtor. We know that this is not the right approach. Instead, we make sure to check local databases and blacklists, while performing a thorough credit check. In doing so, we are able to refine the strategy that will guarantee you the best results.
Sending your debtor a customised demand letter
Once we have a thorough understanding of your debtor’s situation, we start by sending your debtor a customised demand letter. In this letter, we inform the debtor to pay the outstanding amount. A demand letter must comply with several standards. The better the demand letter is written, the more likely the debtor will pay. Moreover, we adjust our letters according to the nature of your case and language of your debtor. Based on our experience, this creates more pressure and likeliness that your debtor pays.
Contacting your debtor by phone
While some debtors will then come up with all sorts of excuses that they have not received the payment reminder, we know otherwise. That’s when our specialists will contact your debtor by phone. By talking to your debtor, we create more engagement, which also gives us the opportunity to find out why the invoice was not paid. By understanding this, it can help determine the next steps that need to be taken.
Your debtor cannot hide from us
Occasionally, we still encounter debtors who are under the impression that our lawyers will quit after having send the demand letter and having called your debtor. What they do not know, is that our efforts don’t stop just there. Our debt collection lawyers have contacts with local bailiffs and private detectives. If necessary, we can always engage our contacts. They can also personally visit your debtor on your behalf.
