Another area of our litigation practice includes the handling of debt recovery cases, where such debt may be related to compensatory claims, outstanding payments and other. Before initiating action we carefully assess the most efficient means to collect depending on the claim’s nature, the debtor’s credit worthiness and the available assets. We understand that under the economic environment, it is important to initiate actions and manage to have an enforceable title before other creditors, and we strive to get results quickly.
