awt Rechtsanwälte offers all facets of modern receivables management from one source: from the first dunning letter and enforcement by the courts to compulsory enforcement and long-term monitoring. We provide competent advice and work with you to develop a collection solution that is tailored to your needs. Your knowledge of the industry and our experience are the key to a successful strategy. According to our understanding, this includes not just the collection of receivables – rather, our goal is to also minimise your financial costs with the help of a cost-benefit analysis.
We are your all-round dunning service partner. We can already assist you at an early stage – with the formulation and design of your correspondence. Deadline provisions and due date clauses in invoices, along with optimum coordinated dunning letters, improve the incoming payments process – and finally also your liquidity.
awt Rechtsanwälte will prepare and send your invoices and dunning letters through its own enveloping and print facility.
Out-of-court collection procedure
In the case of (very) small receivables, court and bailiff costs are often totally disproportionate when compared to the amount of the receivable that must be collected. That is why an effective out-of-court collection process is very important in these cases. Using coordinated work flows, clients can reach their debtors on a cost-neutral basis. The debtor takes notice and can respond.
awt Rechtsanwälte has its own separate call centre with experienced and trained agents and state-of-the-art technology. The ability to talk personally to debtors is often the best way to make payment arrangements, clarify misunderstandings and move objections out of the way. Telephone collection is an uncomplicated way to achieve results that are satisfactory for both sides. We view ourselves as a mediator, and strive to ensure that the debtor remains your customer.
Our employees have received psychological training, and conduct their work with the necessary empathy. Talking directly to the debtor increases the psychological pressure and often brings about a breakthrough in seemingly hopeless cases.
Court-based dunning procedures
Dunning and enforcement notices are effected at the courts in charge on an on-line basis using our own data processing systems. This means that titles for receivables can be obtained quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively – a decisive factor in the collection result.
In the case of objections/appeals, the legal professionals at awt Rechtsanwälte will also look after obtaining title for your receivable. The firm is accredited with all German courts. awt Rechtsanwälte also has its own network of cooperating firms. This long-standing and trust-based collaboration guarantees reliability and a high level of quality with regard to legal matters.
Compulsory enforcement is among the core competencies of awt Rechtsanwälte. The firm offers a highly-qualified compulsory enforcement department, which also makes it very different from most other collection service providers. The real skill in this area often begins only after information regarding the financial situation has been obtained.
awt Rechtsanwälte works on your behalf to obtain payment freezes, garnishment and transfer orders, will garnish work income, accounts and insurance payments, ensure the registration of collateral mortgages, conduct compulsory auctions of real estate and much more.
awt long-term monitoring provides our clients with an instrument that can be used to generate new liquidity from receivables that have already been written off. Continuous and reviewed re-submissions and coordinated measures are used to ascertain changes in the debtor’s personal and financial circumstances, and the required further enforcement measures are initiated.
awt Rechtsanwälte is also a contracting party of SCHUFA.
