Bankruptcy & Debt

Debt & Collection
Credit Repair

Do you have an international debtor who is refusing to pay your invoice? Have you exhausted all pre-legal measures to reclaim your money but still have no success? In this case, you should begin international judicial proceedings. 
            With all court proceedings, it is highly advisable to consult with a lawyer. There are many different paths you can take to recover your outstanding debt with your international debtor. Which path you take will depend highly on the circumstances of your case and the country of your debtor.

            Debt collection has never been easier with Agathor Debt Recovery Lawyers by your side. With over our specialists from Europe's leading economies, we solve all of national and international cases on a No Cure No Pay basis. While you can focus on resuming your business, our experts deploy our resources and measures to recover the payment you are entitled to. Find out more about how debt recovery works and what we can do for you.

            We aim to improve the payment behaviour of companies but also share our knowledge and expertise with those in need. In doing so, we hope to improve the payment behaviour of companies, from small businesses to multinationals. That is why we would like to share our knowledge and explain how you can recover your payment in a few simple steps.

            First of all, If the payment term has expired and your debtor still has not completed the payment, then sending a demand letter is the first step you should take. With a demand letter, you inform the debtor of the outstanding amount and request them to pay. After that a payment reminder often leads to the payment of the invoice. But if your debtor still fails to respond, then the next step is to call the debtor. By talking to your debtor, you create more engagement, which also gives you the opportunity to find out why the invoice was not paid. If calling your debtor in step 2 has no result, then we recommend that you send your debtor a final payment reminder. This will give your debtor one final opportunity to complete the payment of the outstanding invoice. If none of these steps result in the payment, then you may need to take more serious measures. First of all, it is important to act fast. This shows your debtor that you take your debtor management processes serious.

            Debt collection takes place when creditors and collectors seek to secure payment from consumers or businesses who are legally bound to pay or to repay money they owe. It is important that any organisation involved in recovering debt is aware of its legal obligations.

             As Agathor, we provide the collection of your receivables in the fastest time and in the most legal way with our expert staff. We offer you an uninterrupted and secure service with our active collection policy, both in Turkey and around the world. Just contact us and we will offer a quick solution for your debts that you may not be able to collect for a long time.

Agathor Collection Lawyers are able to achieve 90% success in the pre-execution process in this regard. Remember that uncollectible debt can be just as damaging as an unsuccessful lawsuit.
