International debt collection

Collection of international debts

is significantly complicated by the fact that the debtor is located abroad and in most cases outside the access of the national judicial system of the creditor. As practice shows, due to the language barrier, distance, unfamiliar foreign judicial practice, differences in business customs, the creditor is at a disadvantage in front of the fact of outstanding debt.

Grandliga Law Firm is a partner in a number of foreign associations and international debt collection agencies. In addition, we work with carefully selected attorneys and lawyers who specialize in debt collection in their home countries, which allows us to offer our clients reliable and efficient debt collection abroad.


Global international debt collection services include:

♦ pre-trial settlement of a dispute according to the international principle of “amicable collection”, no collection – no fee;

♦ tracking the debtor at his location with the preparation of photo / video reports;

♦ provision of business information about the debtor (option for debtors – legal entities);

♦ judicial debt collection;

♦ compulsory execution of a foreign court decision;

♦ legalization of a court decision on the territory of a foreign state.

The expediency of using a specific kind of the service is determined based on the characteristics of the debt dispute, the position of the debtor and the wishes of the creditor.

In non-standard cases, in addition to the specified components, we are also competent in accompanying the debtor’s bankruptcy procedure or criminal prosecution of the heads / owners of debtor legal entities.

    More about the service


    After accepting the case, the documents are sent to our attorney in the country where the debtor is located, where the latter starts the pre-trial collection process in accordance with the legal norms of local legislation. At this stage, the successful results of the settlement of the debt issue are: – direct payment of the debt; debt restructuring followed by monitoring the implementation of the payment schedule; assignment of debt to a third party with subsequent payment; mutual exchange of services or goods; organization of future deliveries, providing for overpayment of them against debt and other types of security typical for the country of the debtor.

    In the event that the pre-trial collection turns out to be ineffective, the process goes into the stage of judicial collection, which is carried out, as a rule, in accordance with local procedural norms. In practice, there are cases when the court procedure must be carried out either in the court of the creditor’s country, or in a certain international arbitration. But such cases are possible only when such jurisdiction was determined by the parties to the dispute in the contract they concluded.

    The resolution of an international dispute in the national court of the creditor or in the international arbitration of a third country is a longer and more complicated process of debt collection, since in the country of the debtor, in any case, there is a need to organize additional litigation in regards to the legalization of a foreign court decision.

    After receiving the decision of the court of the country of the debtor or after the legalization of the foreign decision of the court, the process of overseas debt collection goes into the stage of compulsory execution of the court decision, at which the assets and accounts of the debtor are seized, with their subsequent implementation to pay off the debt.

    If the debtor’s assets are not enough to pay off the debt, or such assets disappeared as a result of planned actions by the managers or owners of legal entities, then the collection process can be continued by declaring the debtor bankrupt or initiating criminal prosecution of the guilty persons.

    The legal knowledge of Grandliga’s specialists, as well as experience in providing services for the collection of international debts, significantly contribute to the impact on the debtor than your independent actions. With us, the chance for a successful solution to the debt issue is much more promising.
