International Debt Recovery

Our team of debt recovery solicitors offer solutions to international debt collection for companies of all sizes, from SMEs to listed companies.

Specialist international debt recovery solicitors

When pursuing a debtor overseas, navigating laws and jurisdiction can be a complex process, as legal systems vary from country to country. Dealing with international debt recovery requires specialist, in-depth knowledge of the various procedures of the country in question, as well as contacts with local legal teams who can be trusted.

So, when you are facing difficulties recovering a debt from overseas, you need a team of professional and experienced solicitors by your side to advise you on the best way forward. At Trethowans, we have a team of experienced debt recovery solicitors experienced in international debt recovery, who possess the necessary specialist skills and knowledge of foreign enforcement techniques to achieve a successful outcome on your behalf.

Get in touch today by calling 0800 2800 421, or by submitting our quick contact form. A member of our team will be happy to discuss your case.

Our international debt recovery services

If the debt in question relates to English terms and conditions, then our team will be able to issue proceedings from the UK and take enforcement action in the country the debtor is residing in. However, if the terms and conditions of the agreement are governed by another country, then we would potentially need to refer your case to solicitors located in that country to issue proceedings.

In addition, The European Small Claims Procedure, the European Order for Payment procedure and European Enforcement Order facility, are all options our team will also consider in respect of non contested cross border debts owed by a party in one member state to a party in another member state. The aims of the procedures are to make it straight forward, quick and of low cost to be able to pursue an outstanding debt or Judgment when dealing with cross-border litigation.

These procedures will be affected by Brexit in due course. Despite the UK leaving the EU on 31.01.20, the UK continues in the main as though it is still an EU member state during the transition period (currently due to end on 31.12.20) and therefore these procedures continue to be relevant during the transition period.

We are able to cover a wide range of countries and regions across the world, such as America, Canada, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
