DEBT RECOVERY AND ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGN JUDGMENTS IN ITALY

For the purpose of effective and timely credit recovery, we follow a consolidated procedure aimed at favouring, if possible, the voluntary payment of the debt:

• Friendly credit recovery (with or without enforceable title)

We will send a formal notice to the debtor, where possible by certified e-mail, to request payment.

In the event of unavailability of a full voluntary payment, we will seek other payment options, e.g., a repayment plan in instalments. Any full and final settlement will be agreed upon with the client.

ADR procedures may also be activated to try to reach an agreement that best meets the expectations of our client.

• solvency report

Upon authorization by the client, at the same time or following the sending of the formal advice, an investigation may be launched to ascertain the consistency of the debtor's assets and his/her solvency.

• acquisition of an enforceable title

In the event of failure of the amical debt recovery activity, a judicial procedure will be initiated aimed for acquiring an enforceable title, or we will use the foreign judgement of the client, recognized and enforceable in Italy.

• enforcement proceedings

In the event of non-payment, we will carry out an enforcement proceeding.

Enforcement of an obligation to pay a sum of money in Italy is a judicial proceeding and it is obtained through foreclosure and liquidation of assets of the debtor, including:

• movable assets;

• real estate;

• receivables and bank account;

In case of request of the creditors and as alternative to the sale through auctions, assets can be assigned to the creditors in satisfaction of their claims.
