International debt recovery solutions

Legal systems vary from country to country and as such, international debt recovery can present difficult problems of jurisdiction, law and procedure. Language barriers, time zones and cultural nuances can be difficult aspects to navigate and as such you need a legal team with access to specialist lawyers based in the country you are dealing with.

Here at Stephensons, our team has access to over 1,000 lawyers internationally through our collaboration with EuroCollectNet, an association of European law firms with representatives based in almost every country across Europe. This means your business needs can be addressed directly through our official channels in a timely manner and by a lawyer in the country you are dealing with.
