Our experience and business know-how enable us to use our resources to achieve optimal commercial results for credit institutions or insurers in terms of minimizing loss.  For collection proceedings, we prioritize timing and make sure that debtors do not lose liquidity during the process.  We are also experienced in making use of several forms of cross-border interim measures such as monetary attachments in order to secure the debt as well as obtaining foreign-enforceable judgements and awards.  Hence, we are able to remove any and all obstacles for collection, and reach further than any single jurisdiction.
