Recourse enforcement throughout Europe
Many officials at social security institutions are aware of the problem: In order to assert liability claims abroad in Europe, the involvement of debt collection service providers may cause some difficulties.
These are usually language barriers, insufficient communication on the ground and lack of cost transparency. If the claims are enforced by the courts, a lawyer must also be consulted, which further increases the coordination effort in the communication between the parties.
Against this backdrop, we would like to present you with a superior organizational and professional solution for the enforcement of redress claims. Find out more about our solution for Europe-wide redress enforcement.

Our compensation model – two phases, double control
We offer you a needs-based case management including a preliminary assessment of the prospects for success as well as a transparent compensation model.
Phase 1: Identification of the facts and assessment of the prospects for success
This phase can be covered by us on the basis of a flat rate payment. The lump sum includes the examination of the information and documents relevant to the mandate by a lawyer in the country of the application to be filed as well as a written statement in German. This document gives a general recommendation on the prospects of success of the claim for redress.

Phase 2: Commission to enforce the right of recourse
This phase can be assumed by us on the basis of a mixed model, which includes a lump sum independent of performance as well as an additional part of compensation in the event of success.
The lump sum irrespective of performance takes into account the various expenses associated with an out-of-court or judicial assertion. The amount of the success fee is based on the amounts obtained in the course of the claim – for this purpose a binding percentage is determined together with the social security institution at the beginning of the cooperation.
