Italian Debt Collection

Giambrone offers a full range of debt collections options for Italian debts across Italy. Through an international network of experienced Italian debt collection lawyers Giambrone are able to collect debts of all types.

Our success rate is very high in settling most of the cases out of court and without the need for judicial intervention; however, if we do need to take the matter to court, our team are able to mediate and litigate on your behalf.

A debt collection lawyer is more effective than a debt collection agency as in most countries, including Italy, a lawyer has various possibilities to take appropriate action to collect your debt, e.g. start legal procedures, file a petition for bankruptcy, have an attachment placed on assets of the debtor. A debtor knows what a debt collection lawyer can do and is therefore often prepared to settle the debt amicably.

The Usual procedure for Italian debt collection will involve:

1. Letter before action

If we make a recovery of the debt without legal proceedings we charge  a fee based on a percentage of the debt.

2. Tracing agents

If the address of the debtor is unknown we confirm their current location by instructing a tracing agent.

3. Issuing proceedings

If a defence is filed at court Giambrone’s experienced lawyers will litigate on your behalf.

4. Enforcement

If the debtor fails to settle the debt after court proceedings then we can enforce action to recover the debt, these will include Balliffs, charging orders, third party debt order and attachment of earnings.

We will look at the unique facts of your case and advise accordingly on the best procedure to take moving forward. This will be based on what will bring the best return in the right amount of time.

In most cases, we will accept to act on a contingency fee basis, subject to a prior assessment of the case and of the financial strength of the debtor.
