Debt collection in Europe and abroad
The highest international recovery rate on No Cure No Pay
How does our international debt collection work? – Our success formula
"If Bierens cannot get your money back, no one can."
Our strategy allows our debt collection lawyers to find your debtor no matter where they are located. We can help you recover your claim both without court intervention in the extrajudicial phase and with court intervention in the judicial phase. In doing so, we always find the most cost-effective solutions. This is how:
Understanding your debtor with a thorough local and international databases check
By checking international credit reports, official local databases and blacklists, we can obtain the latest and the most precise data. This allows our lawyers to make more accurate predictions to define the chances of success for your case.
Sending your debtor customised demand letters
Once we understand your debtor, we start by sending your debtor a customised demand letter. By sending a letter written in the same language as your debtor, we know this creates more pressure and the likelihood that your debtor pays.
Putting your debtor off guard with phone calls in your debtor’s native language
Foreign debtors are always taken by surprise when approached by our debt collection lawyers. Your debtor will be put on the spot with no time to come up with any excuses. We know this creates more engagement and pressure for your debtor to pay.
Refusing to let your debtor hide from our private detectives
Our international debt collection lawyers have contacts with international bailiffs and private detectives. If necessary, we can engage our contacts who will further investigate your debtor.
Visiting your international debtor
Besides conducting an investigation, our international debt recovery contacts can also personally visit your debtor. With our collaboration with local bailiffs, we can always track your debtor.
Going the extra mile with legal action
If your debtor still refuses to pay, then we can go to court in consultation with you. We determine where litigation will guarantee you the highest chances of success. With our knowledge of international debt collection laws, we can also determine which procedure is most cost-effective.
International debt collection laws and strategy
As mentioned before, if your debtor fails to pay in the extrajudicial phase, then we can continue by taking further legal action. When taking legal action, it is important to know that international debt collection laws and regulations differ in each country.
While the Mahnvervahren is a common procedure in Germany, the Small Claims procedure in the United Kingdom, or the bankruptcy petition in the Netherlands, there are many national procedures that our lawyers know how to use to your advantage. For example, they can help you determine in which country you should litigate, and which procedures will be most effective for your case. Since there are no universal debt collection laws, having an experienced lawyer by your side with local knowledge and experience can help you break down complicated procedures into effective results.
