International Debt Collection Agency

International litigation

With an international debt collection case, you will be confronted with a different language, culture and legislation than those you are used to. Moreover, local customs concerning payment may not be what you expect. This tends to make international debt collection a complex matter. As an international debt collection agency, we have more than 60 years of knowledge and experience to assist you with all your international debt collection matters.

Do you have an international debtor?

In Europe, we work with specific teams per country who can assist you with your international debt collection. For example, if you have a company based in Germany with a Polish debtor, then our Polish lawyer will work with you to contact your debtor. At the same time, our Polish lawyer will work closely with our German lawyer to maximize the chances of your success.

No Cure No Pay international debt collection agency

Our international debt collection agency works on a No Cure No Pay basis. This is the most cost-effective method of recovering your international claims. With an undisputed case, you only pay an amount of €150 for research costs, which we use to investigate your debtor. This means that in principle, we charge 5% of the claim including €150 for research costs, with a maximum of 15% of the entire claim. Our debt collection specialists and lawyers will then deploy our debt collection measures to recover your claim.

Once we have successfully retrieved your claim, we try to recover the fees from your debtor as much as possible. Since your debtor pays our fees, this means that you are exposed to minimal risks in retrieving your invoice.

How does international debt collection work?

Although collecting debt abroad can be more challenging than when dealing with a national collection case, with a specialist debt collector, you can still get your money back.

But how does it work? Well, that depends completely on the country of your debtor. The process can be very different and is also dependent on the complexity of the case. An international debt collection lawyer can help you with this process. They have knowledge of your debtor’s country’s laws and can communicate in your debtor’s native language.

International debt collection laws

There is no one overriding international debt collection law or rule book. In Europe, the process for recovering the debt is very different depending on the country of your debtor. This means that the process for getting your outstanding debt paid is likely to be very different to what you are used to in your country.

However, this shouldn’t put you off trying to collect your debt from your international debtor. With an international debt collection agency, you can strengthen your position. Understanding the laws of your debtor’s country and being able to communicate with your debtor in their own language, means you are more likely to get your outstanding invoice paid. Moreover, as an international debt collection agency, we also have the authority to enforce measures.
