Debt collection


Debt collection is the economic and legal action to be taken against an individual or a company, if any other means have failed. Given that debt is to be collected beyond the Luxembourg border, such a procedure requires the involvement of a lawyer.


NC Advocat helps you with the drafting of the prior formal notice, the payment request, the in-court or out-of-court enforcement of the claim, and the order for payment …

… in the following areas:

  • civil claims (debt acknowledgement, alimony, etc),
  • commercial claims (unpaid bills, lack of implementation of contract, etc),
  • lease debt.

For this sake, we will provide you with those instruments that are most appropriate at each stage of the litigation:

  • development of a collection strategy (both at pre-litigation and litigation stage),
  • drafting the formal notice,
  • application of the procedure related to interest on late payments,
  • locating the debtor and his assets,
  • support during negotiations,
  • taking the case before the court and obtaining a judgement,
  • establishing the different paths that lead to its implementation.


We will help you collect debt beyond the Luxembourg border.

It is highly important to find the right balance between the amount at stake, the sake of the demand and its cost. Before embarking on the procedure we thus inform our clients on the risk and the cost as well as on the procedures.

In order to collect debt from an individual or a company registered in another EU Member State, e.g. France, Belgium, or Germany but with the exception of Denmark, the following three instruments, which may supplement or replace the Luxembourgish ones, are at our disposal:

  • the “European Enforcement Order”
  • the “European Payment Order” and
  • the “European Small Claims Procedure”.
