The claim of debts at international level is often a major concern for citizens and companies that having their domiciles in a country of the European Union, have to claim a debt in another State member.
Our legal has a broad experience in recovery of international debts at non litigation stage, in Court, or via court enforcement of judgments obtained in member countries of the European Union.
Recently, we have been awarded with both successful Judgments for our clients; one in a Judicial Claim Procedure and another by the Enforcement of an European Order.
Depending on what is the situation of the debt in origin, we will go right to a judicial procedure in Spain or, if the client has already in its possession a favourable judgment, to a process of execution of the sentence.
When a creditor who wishes to request the execution, two paths can be followed:
- Execution in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (“Brussels I”).
- Obtain an EEO – European Enforcement Order- in the Member State in which the judgment was issued, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 805/2004 establishing a European Enforcement Order for uncontested claims.
The latter is a very expedite procedure with high probability of success.
I'm very successful on international debt recovery and if you have any question please don't hesitate to contact me.
