Case Study

Maxwell & Associates has obtained on behalf of their client a ruling whereby it is established that their client is owed monies by a debtor who is now living in Spain. This law firm hires us to execute the UK ruling in Spain whereby their client is able to successfully place charges against the Spanish assets of his debtor thus securing the owed amounts. This will avoid the debtor selling off the assets and waiving his financial liabilities to his creditor.
