Debt Collection Lawyers

Collecting debt from South African-based individuals or companies may seem daunting if you are based abroad. We understand the frustration and concerns involved when the debtor is based in a country thousands of miles away, seemingly out of reach, and protected by country-specific laws that differ from your own. When taking matters into one’s own hands, you might find that you are confronted with legal red tape, false promises, or face being outright ignored. It may be tempting to write such debt off as the time-investment and effort expended in pursuing payment could easily appear to be futile.
