One of our long term clients had built up a debt of £3300 and despite making repeated promises to pay no money was forthcoming. We tried sending a solicitor’s letter but this had no effect and we did not want to risk throwing good money after bad for legal action. For me it was business principal which made it important to collect these invoices. I had received an introduction from Sterling so I contacted them to find out what was on offer from debt collection agents. Sterling didn’t suggest jumping straight in with legal action, they just collected any relevant background info from me regards the debt and offered to work on a commission only basis with no payment up front. This was the result: 2 weeks later Sterling informed me they had negotiated to recover more than £4000 from the debtor, this being the total invoice value plus late charges. This meant that after deducting Sterling’s fee I would still recover more than the outstanding invoice value. I’m delighted with the service and if I have a bad debtor in future I’ll contact Sterling first.

Debt litigation in Montenegro
Where legal expertise is necessary, our UK lawyer working in our Krakow office has considerable experience in collecting cross-border debt. Even if it proves necessary to engage our lawyer to assist in recovery, he will still attempt to achieve payment without court proceedings. If litigation is required, then we will analyse the case and provide advice as to whether the procedure is likely to be successful and cost effective. We will also advise on which procedure is more appropriate, including options for enforcement should this be necessary. Various options for litigation are possible depending on the terms of business and status of the debt. In some cases the terms will stipulate that the jurisdiction is in our client’s country, in which case it may be appropriate to issue a claim there before applying to the Montenegrin court to register the judgement. Often the European Order for Payment procedure may be more efficient, and in others cases it may be necessary to take action in Montenegro.
Where local representation, expertise, or enforcement is necessary in Montenegro, we are able to call on an established network of trusted partners there to assist in collection. The entire process is managed by our debt collection team so that our client has a single point of contact throughout the process.
