Debt collection in France

Do you have debtors in France or are you involved in payment proceedings before a French court? Berton & Associés supports you with its legal expertise in French-German law.

If you delivered goods in France or performed services for a French client and you have not been paid, we can help you.

We check if you can claim your outstanding payments in France and undertake an enquiry about your debtor. While taking into consideration the amount of your payment request, we help you elaborate the best strategy for the debt recovery.

First, we generally examine if your claim is secured. We send your French debtor collection letters. When necessary, we file a petition for listing the creditor’s claim in bankruptcy proceedings.

We introduce court proceedings in order to claim payment everywhere in France. We represent you in the proceedings and monitor the enforcement of the judgment. We also represent clients who want to enforce a foreign judgment in France.

We also represent debtors who have been summoned before a French court by a French or foreign creditor both in negotiations and before the court.
