We provide consulting services on all issues of debt recovery in France. We can provide consulting services in German, French or English.
Cross-border business transactions may give rise to open claims against one of your French customers. The customer may pay slowly, late or not at all.
Apart from the issue of whether your claim has arisen, is payable and can be substantiated at all, aspects such as the statute of limitations and the nature of the debtor (consumer, company) are also critical factors.
If an out-of-court claims management process proves unsuccessful, the legal prospects of success and the evidence available must be considered, as well as whether it is economically worthwhile to assert the claim in court, taking into account the associated costs.
In addition with legal consulting, our team with intercultural experience will also offer you practical support in the following areas in France.
