"Justice for creditors"
We are Bierens European Collection Attorneys, the oldest and largest commercial debt collection specialized law firm in Europe. Founded in the Netherlands in 1952 by Frits Bierens. With its headquarters in the Netherlands, Bierens is still family run today. Son Sander Bierens is the current managing partner and grandson Timo Bierens is also part of the Bierens team.
Our team and offices
Our team consists of over 100 employees. In Amsterdam, Antwerp, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Paris and Rome we have an experienced group of over 45 specialized attorneys and lawyers from many European countries: Germany, France, the UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Croatia, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary and Greece. Furthermore, we cover many other European countries as well. Outside Europe, we have offices in Shanghai and New York.
Bierens provides a one-stop shopping model for your complete B2B debt collection process: extrajudicial, judicial or disputed cases. We advise you on all of your debt collection related needs and our attorneys provide excellent credit risk management consultancy. Working with in-house international lawyers and attorneys who specialize in debt collection, provides much better results and uniformity than trying to establish foreign partnerships. That is why our product is highly effective and complete. Our team of legal experts and collection specialists has made us the most reliable commercial debt collection partner in Europe for many years and our client list, which includes many multinationals listed in S&P 500, Nasdaq and Eurostocks 50, proves our credibility.
Creativity and innovation
To serve our clients in the best possible way and to stay on top of our game, we value creativity and innovation at Bierens. This can be traced back to the aesthetics and the creative, inclusive atmosphere at our law firms. We have an open-minded, 21st century tech-company mentality and we operate under a company structure rather than an old-fashioned partnership. As a result, our approach to the collection market is innovative, creative and effective which also makes room for a more dynamic, collaborative decision-making model. Bierens is a very inspirational and pleasant place to work.
"No-nonsense attitude, creativity, integrity, the mentality to win and justice for creditors" – these core values have characterized us for over 60 years. This is the Bierens-DNA; the values we live by.
“Decisiveness is essential, and Bierens’ energetic approach as an extension of our own credit management is an excellent fit for us” - Frank Oosenbrug / Universal Music
