- Debt Collection

Any debt collection starts by collecting information about the debtor. The financial and economic situation of the debtor and his previous behavior will determine the best course of action. In Estonia there are several electronic registers of corporate data, which can be accessed by authorized persons, including law firms. Some registers are not public, but access by attorneys is permitted. Personal contacts in specific areas of business may also help to understand the position of the debtor.
