To contact us send us an e-mail to:

We would appreciate it if you

Actually we offer not to charge any commission or contingency fee at all in out-of-court proceedings if

  • the claim is not older than 3 years (1 years in transport industry)
  • we dispose of a valid postal address and all contact details of the debtor
  • we dispose of all documents like invoices, contract, delivery notes (POD’s), CMR in transport business, correspondence
  • we dispose of a signed Letter of Authorisation (PoA), check information below

Actuelly we offer to charge only court fees in court proceedings if

  • all the above conditions are met

  • the principal claim and amount owed are below 15,000 EUR and more than 500 EUR
  • no objections of the debtor are known
  • the debtor does not object by filing an objection to the court, never mind justified or not
  • the debtor is still solvent on the basis of our prior examination

It is therefore possible to achieve an enforceable enforcement order, writ of execution resp. judgment with an investment of 50-300 EUR depending on the amount of the claim. Please note that in Germany a legal table with the court and lawyer's fees applies. Check the legal table here>>

Please understand that we must reserve the right to check all these details before confirming these conditions. These conditions do not apply in the event of insolvency proceedings. The fees for enforcement proceedings are difficult to predict, but are regularly in the range of 50-150 EUR.

What is the collection procedure?

We regularly send a request for payment (including main claim, interest, costs) and set a deadline of around 1 week.
We will contact the debtor by phone at the same time (contact by phone, email, fax and mail).
In around 1 week we will know if the debtor pays the debt voluntarily.

Our workflow allows basically 4 steps from a first request for payment (dunning letter) up to the sending of a fully prepared plaint (written statement of claim) to threaten the debtor with court proceedings.

Letter of Authorization (proxy, PoA)

We kindly request to sign and send back a Letter of Authorization (proxy, PoA) by email to avoid discussions with the debtor about our mandate.
We will send it after receipt of your inquiry.

The LoA is a proof for the debtor that we are entitled to act on behalf of the client. Otherwise the debtor can refuse any communication. It does not rule any conditions in relation to us.

Please note that in case of enforcement of a judgment bailiffs are requested by law to demand a LoA with original signature send by mail.
Please note that it is a legal requirement in Germany to present a signed proxy to the debtor. The debtor can refuse to communicate with us. Please consider that also that bailiffs, courts and other authorities are requested by law to demand a signed LoA with original signature send by post.

Please fill in and complete the form, sign it and send it back by e-mail/fax-letter plus mail (original form, no registered mail please!).  
A LoA/PoA does not affect or rule any conditions in relation to us in any way. It is only a proof for third parties that we are entitled to act on behalf of our clients. It only proves our entitlement to act on your behalf.
