International debt collection and recovery can be one of the most daunting tasks your business will face due to a lack of understanding of the laws of a foreign country, dealing with debtors and debt collection agencies across time zones and multiple currencies. There is the added challenge of finding a reliable and cost effective legal practitioner in your debtor’s jurisdiction, as few business relations in life involve a higher trust and confidence than that of attorney and client.
