Thanks to our many years of experience managing serious disputes we have been able to develop our own "modus operandi"

Its objective? Recovering claims in an integral and integrated (from the pre-litigation to the court-proceedings phase) fashion that is flexible, clear, swift and efficient.

Swiftness and a continuous exchange of information :

- Compliance with the statutory requirements and the code of professional conduct
- Keeping costs to a minimum
- Clarity in the recovery of assets and financial transfers
- Flexibility with regard to clients in arrears
- Exactness of your/our references in every document
Claims management procedure
Preamble: together with you, we look at your internal claims management procedure

1/ You provide our chambers with an EXCEL file containing all the relevant information.

2/ Our chambers send your debtor a FORMAL NOTICE on headed letter paper and a bank transfer form.

3/ If the formal notice has not been acted on within four weeks, we issue your debtor with a SUMMONS to appear in court; unless otherwise statutorily or contractually provided, all your claims are filed before the same court (the Justice of the Peace Court of the place where your registered office is located for instance).

4/ We look for and select a solicitor who is prepared to work on the basis of a fixed fee per file referred to the court to represent you at the court hearing (with your approval).

5/ After the hearing, we send your debtor a letter to inform him that the court has found against him, together with a statement of the sums owed.

6/ If this notice is disregarded, we obtain a copy of the judgment and serve your debtor with a NOTIFICATION-FINAL DEMAND AND NOTICE.

7/ In the absence of any response and after your debtor's situation has been re-examined, we launch the SEIZURE PROCEDURE (distraint, garnishment, attachment) that is the most appropriate for your claim.

At any stage during the procedure, even in the pre-litigation stage, THE PROCEDURE IS DISCONTINUED AND NO FURTHER COSTS ARE INCURRED if there are sound reasons to fear for the debtor's solvency.

As a rule, our chambers will favour an agreement with the debtor on REASONABLE SCHEDULED PAYMENTS in settlement of your claim at every stage of the procedure, even during the pre-litigation stage.
