European service and supplies providers utilize our services when Estonian managers fail to fulfill their obligations.
- 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.

Narlex has attorneys with experience of dealing with a range of criminal cases. Whether a businessman, an individual or a state official finds himself in the middle of criminal investigations, we will defend their rights with sound experience. We also believe that our experience in criminal defense vitally helps our business clients to avoid situations which could give grounds for such accusations. Such situations can arise in competition law, planning takeovers or many other business undertakings.
