Counsel for legal litigation in Germany

There is, however, an exception to the rule that, foresight and proximity established, a duty of care will arise. Even though these be established, a claim in Hamburg may yet be denied on the ground that to permit it would be contrary to policy. This legal concept was, a long time ago, compared by a judge to english speaking lawyers.
The essence of it is that sometimes considerations other than the need to do justice betweeen the parties must be taken into account. These considerations include the general public interest, expedience, economic considerations and even the dictates of the German law. Such factors may operate so as to outbalance the creditors right and defeat his claim by a debt collection agency in Germany.
A statutory demand is a written demand by the creditor for payment, and it was held that a civil action cannot lie against counsel in the conduct of litigation because public policy and the compensation for damages so demands. In particular, it was said that it is essential to the administration of justice that all actions for the recovery of debts and outstanding amounts concerned in a trial should be free to speak and act without fear of subsequent civil claims, even if it becomes necessary to commission a debt collection agency.

The European law, established by the lawyer in Munich, administers the resources of international affairs for claims management. In most of these law suits it will be necessary to seek for a attorney in Germany who is english speaking.

No payment from your debtor in Germany?

Unfortunately there are some people who make a habit of using foreign suppliers and service providers to provide goods or services on credit. They exploit the lack of knowledge of their foreign suppliers about German law and take advantage of a general unwillingness to start legal action in Germany. We are prepared and able to assist you in these matters. You only send a single reminder to the debtor and leave the rest cashing in Germany to us.
Most foreign businesses are unaware that in Germany the statutory legal fees can be claimed directly from the debtor. A subsequent approach by a lawyer in Germany will make it clear that your company is not only acquainted with the law as to collection of debts in Germany, but also willing and prepared to enforce its rights.
In the last four decades we have titled and executed thousands of judgements and enforcement orders. We have a reliable network of 900 attorneys over the entire country, with whom we work on a daily basis. This enables us to start appropriate action without delay. If a German debtor does not pay, we commence all necessary legal action and pursue the debt until collection by a bailiff. In a legitimate claim the final judgement obliges the debtor to reimburse all statutory legal fees as well as the statutory interest on the debt. No performance-related commission will be charged. After successful execution of a judgement you will receive your complete debt as well as the interest on it.
Don't hesitate to contact us directly so that we can assess your needs and assist you in doing successful business in Germany.
We are admitted at all German courts of justice (Amtsgericht, Landgericht, Oberlandesgericht).
