Due to the economic downturn of the Irish economy and the worldwide recession the importance of debt collection has come to the fore as a result of the lack of liquidity in the marketplace. It has been magnified since 2008 with the collapse of many worldwide financial institutions. Consequently, banks have either withdrawn or reduced credit facilities to business and the impact has led to firms being unable to discharge their debts in a timely fashion due to the diminished circular flow of funds. This is a time for careful credit control and we can assist you with debt collection services.

Our firm is skilled and experienced in debt collection procedures and the enforcement of court judgments in Ireland.
