Your go-to debt collection partner.

Getting paid for services rendered or goods supplied is your fundamental right. Unfortunately, unpaid invoices are an unavoidable reality, sometimes in large numbers. This issue directly impacts your cash flow, potentially bringing your business to a standstill. Debt collection often eats up a lot of time and establishing an effective in-house debt collection or delinquency management service can be challenging. As a debt collection agency, WEGELIN assists your company in managing unpaid invoices to safeguard your business and its financial stability, through both amicable negotiations and legal proceedings if necessary. We offer tailored solutions for your outstanding debts and provide debt collection services across France and Europe.


What is the role of a debt collection agency?

A debt collection agency helps you recover outstanding payments from debtors. Debt collection is a specialized field governed by decree and the French code on civil enforcement procedures. Entrusting the recovery of your unpaid invoices to a reliable professional is crucial, as they act on your behalf.

To proceed, the debt collection agency must establish a mandate contract authorizing them to engage with your debtors. This agreement outlines the debt’s origin and the amounts owed by the debtor. It’s crucial that the debt be well-defined and justified to meet legal requirements and our ethical standards.

You have two legal avenues for debt recovery: amicable resolution and judicial action. At WEGELIN, most cases are settled amicably, but we’re prepared to litigate to protect your interests when necessary. If your debtor has vanished without a trace, our debt collection agency conducts thorough investigations to locate them.

A debt collection agency is indispensable for businesses with unpaid invoices. Time is not on your side when dealing with unpaid debts, so don’t let them linger—take action by entrusting your cases to a specialized agency.

Amicable and judicial debt recoveries

require careful planning and expertise and should be handled by professionals within a specialized debt collection agency.

Pursuing payment from slow-paying or financially strained clients is a critical and strategic move for your cash flow. It demands precise skills to secure what you’re owed and minimize legal disputes with your clients. If your business doesn’t already have an in-house debt recovery department, turning to a debt collection agency helps you navigate these situations tactfully while allowing you to focus on your core operations.

By meticulously assessing each debt and case, our specialized debt collection agency assists you in recovering your debts through amicable negotiations and/or legal action. Legal proceedings serve as the last resort to reclaim your debt.

As an experienced debt collection agency, we advocate for amicable resolutions in most cases; however, we recognize that, in some instances, legal action may be the most effective route to protect your interests. We’ll guide you through this process with pragmatism and efficiency.

With amicable debt collection, a vast majority of outstanding invoices can be swiftly resolved through mutual agreement between the involved parties. Turning to a specialized debt collection agency sends a clear signal to your debtor, demonstrating your determination to pursue legal action if necessary. This proactive approach significantly boosts the chances of promptly recovering your debts.
