The Power of the Largest Debt Collection Law Firm in Europe for Commercial Debt Collection
Our expertise and passion are focused on debt recovery matters. We are a truly specialised law firm. Does your company have a European customer who is not paying your invoice? We have been seeking justice for creditors since 1952.
Debt Recovery Lawyers for the twenty Largest European Economies
Bierens employs more than sixty debt recovery lawyers and debt recovery specialists. Are you conducting business in Europe and do you have a customer who is not paying your invoice? We have in-house European debt recovery specialists who can assist you in getting your invoice paid.
Knowledge of Local Legislation and Business Customs
Our international debt recovery lawyers have extensive experience and knowledge of legislation and regulations in your debtor’s country. In addition, they are fully aware of commercial traditions and the culture of that country. That makes it easier to get your debtor to pay quickly.
Debt Recovery in your Debtor’s Language
Our lawyers speak both your language and the debtor’s language, which allows them to overcome language barriers with ease.
The Advantages of a Debt Recovery Lawyer
You Are at an Advantage with a Debt Recovery Lawyer
Debt recovery lawyers have more means at their disposal to put pressure on your debtor than a debt recovery agency or bailiff. In addition, we can assist you during both the extrajudicial and judicial phases. This saves you time and money.
Regulated Professionals Acting With Integrity
Not every organisation in the debt collection industry is regulated. As lawyers, we must meet strict regulatory requirements. We are governed by a ‘code of conduct’ to ensure only the highest standards of client care.
We will always give our honest advice on the chances of success in your debt recovery matter. Putting your interests first is important to us; we endeavour to provide you with your options, as well as our advice on the best route to take. It’s easy to see how we put our core values of integrity and justice into practice.
Customised Debt Recovery
Our commercial debt recovery approach is customised to each unique case, and we provide you with tailor-made advice.
Tenacious or tactical approach? Your choice
Together, we will determine which approach is best in your case. With our tenacious mentality, we can exert maximum pressure on your debtor. Do you value maintaining a good relationship with your debtor? In that case, we will ensure that your debt recovery matter does not get in the way of future collaboration with your customer.
Always Online Access
From your personal page in our online programme, you may follow the progress of your debt recovery matter 24/7. This way, you are always up-to-date with the latest developments concerning your case.
Personal Contact with our Lawyers
We consider personal contact about your debt recovery matter of paramount importance. That is why, at our firm, you are always in direct contact with the debt recovery lawyer handling your case. Our online tool also allows you to contact your debt recovery lawyer.
Fast Debt Recovery
Would you like to collect quickly? Then hand your debt recovery matter over to us before 16.00 hrs, and we will act on your instructions that same day. Subsequently, your debtor will have just a few days to effect payment. We are on top of it!
Transparency of Costs
Extrajudicial Phase: No Win, No Fee
During the extrajudicial phase, we operate on the No Win, No Fee principle. Is there no payment from your debtor? You merely pay a fixed amount of administrative costs (between €150 – €250), which is a low-risk to you.
Most debt recovery matters are collected during the extrajudicial phase. Nevertheless, if it is decided to proceed with the judicial phase, then we always inform you in advance regarding the potential costs of the proceedings, and we only proceed with your permission.
No Subscription Costs
You do not have to take out a subscription if you want to hand over a debt recovery matter to us. Do you only have one single debt recovery matter? Then you may also count on our services.
