International law is multifaceted and multi-layered – it concerns not only the question of which country you can or must enforce your rights, but also according to which legal system, according to which material law the relationship is to be judged at all. Clarifying these questions at an early stage is essential for the successful handling of a legal matter.
As an internationally oriented law firm, we look after many clients in cases with an international dimension. We are presenting just one subject area here as an example:
International debt collection
Debt collection has meanwhile become an industry with a long tradition. As lawyers, due to our extensive training, we are allowed, along with other approved debt collection companies, to collect debts that are in default of payment out of court – and, if necessary, in court. We offer you, as our client, extensive consulting and support services. As an experienced service provider in receivables management, we help companies secure their liquidity and thus survive in the competition.
We advise you on pre-litigation solutions in order to avoid payment defaults, for example through installment payment agreements that are acceptable for both parties. Of course, we also advise on the prospects, costs and benefits, but also on the risks of legal proceedings, such as for example the (European) dunning procedure. In special constellations, however, the sale of the disputed claim is also an option. Sometimes you have to be quick: If a debitor threatens to move / conceal assets, you have to secure them against impending loss with pre-seizures, temporary account seizures, etc.
