We assist our clients not only with the drafting and negotiation of contracts, in out-of-court and in-court disputes, but also with the effective recovery of claims at national and international level. Thus, the scope of our legal services encompasses also claims management through debt collection and enforcement measures.

Tailor-made solutions from a single source

Through the seamless cooperation of our lawyers and our team of professionally trained and experienced colleagues of our debt collection and enforcing department, we offer our clients comprehensive and most effective support from a single source.

This cooperation safeguards that your claims are handled in a uniform manner, tailored to the individual case: commencing with a dunning letter on our letter head (if necessary), followed by obtaining an enforceable legal title until the final application of suitable enforcement measures.

Particularly complex and special cases are recognised as such at an early stage and dealt with in the special and appropriate manner, necessary.

Proven and success-oriented

In the past, Ahlers & Vogel’s broad expertise and long-lasting experience have often helped to realise even seemingly hopeless claims.
