TCM Bolivia—Ortuste & Associates Law Firm

International Debt Collectors since 1989

International debt collection professionals for Bolivia, Ortuste & Associates Law Firm—TCM Bolivia—was established in 1989 and has its headquarters in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, with offices in Sucre, La Paz, Cochabamba, Beni, and Pando.

For over a quarter of a century now, we have been successfully providing our clients with a comprehensive spread of specialized legal and consultation services: from national and international debt collection services on a contingency fee basis and diverse arbitral and representative processes at the highest tribunal levels to all manner of juridical and appraisal services in the areas of maritime law and international sales agreements.

Our long-standing membership of TCM Group International—probably the world’s most respected and extensive global debt collection network—means that we are able to offer you international debt collection services that adhere to the highest quality and ethical standards in the industry—no matter where your outstanding debt may be located.

For instance, the Group’s yearly auditing programme ensures 1) you receive only best quality services regardless of what contact node is responsible for your case and 2) the network maintains the high ethical and performance standards for which it is renowned. Each member office must submit to this programme to secure membership renewal.

The Group’s AGMs, of which the yearly audits are a part, foster the cohesion and synergy that enable such effectiveness, efficiency, and seamlessness in service provision.

TCM, and therefore TCM Bolivia, has representation in over 150 countries and across five continents. TCM Bolivia is also a member of ACA International, CLLA, and LATINCOB.
