They do this by attending regular in-house trainings and international conferences on the latest developments – technological, legal and interpersonal – in the industry.
In the amicable phase of collection, our collectors make use of industry-standard collection procedures that have stood the test of time in terms of effective expedition of payment: sending dunning letters (also via courier) and emails, telephoning the debtor, making field visits, and organizing face-to-face meetings.
With their first-hand knowledge of the Greek, Cypriot and international business environments, our multilingual team can also use soft skills such as negotiating, decision making, and problem solving to maximum effect. We place particular emphasis on obtaining debtor commitment to payment proposals through speaking their language, knowing their business sector, and engaging in win-win negotiation strategies.

Such knowledge ensures we always operate within the bounds of the law, protecting our, your and your debtor’s good name and guaranteeing transparency, the highest ethical conduct, and fair play for all.
We only advocate advancing to the second tier of the collection process – namely, litigation – when the debtor has proved impervious to our amicable collection efforts. Until legal proceedings are initiated, all of our collection efforts are carried out on a ‘No Cure, No Fee’ basis.
Before initiating legal proceedings on your behalf, we provide you with thoroughgoing legal counsel on the viability of the case and give you a realistic prognosis of what to expect by way of a positive court judgement and the execution of that judgement.
Some typical actions we take against the debtor include filing an order against the debtor’s immovable property and freezing the debtor’s assets. As a rule, we make a last effort to arrive at an out-of-court payment while the case is being heard.
