Focus on out of court settlements
Priority is always given to out of court recovery of your debts. Court hearings can be time-consuming and cost-intensive; and the actual outcome can often be disappointing. In addition, many legal systems are said to be inefficient and corrupt. These problems increase from north to south and from west to Eastern Europe. For that reason Creditreform European debt recovery services focus on amicable, out of court settlements.
This makes the competence in the local market all the more important. Our European debt collection experts contact your debtors by email, post, telephone or, if necessary, by even visiting them personally in order to find acceptable solutions for both sides.
With their long-standing experience our European debt recovery experts will do a thorough analysis of the financial situation of the debtor and all efforts will be made for a rapid collection of your outstanding claim. It is proven that the monthly instalments as well as amicable settlements are effective. For this to happen, personal communication with the debtors is essential.
Of course it is also possible to take legal action via Creditreform. Before initiating legal actions the costs will be calculated and before starting any legal proceedings we will obtain the creditors explicit approval.
