Examples of international cases successfully handled by D'Ormane:
Let's get married… the edifying story of beautiful wedding dresses
Two young fashion designers who are paid by their distributor based on a percentage of the sales Despite numerous reminders, they were thus unable to invoice for their services and to collect the sums due. They submitted the dispute to Cabinet d'Ormane for collection of the arrears.
A two-step approach :
- Identification of the decision-maker Cabinet d'Ormane resolved the situation by finding the real decision-maker, who had been transferred in the meantime. As he was far from the scene, he had lost interest in the matter, and claimed to be overloaded with work.
- Out-of-court settlement: insistent reminders of the debtor's obligations Cabinet d'Ormane continually stressed the urgency of addressing the matter with the financial director if he wanted to avoid having his accounts investigated through a seizure by the Court of Commerce.
In less than 15 days, the Accounting Director had paid a first installment of 7500 euros and had provided the sales figures. He even asked that he receive an additional invoice in order to pay the . balance A complex manner quickly resolved by Cabinet d'Ormane.
A collection that went well
An Italian shoe manufacturer sold merchandise to a French retailer. Despite chasing him up, over € 6,000 of invoices remained unpaid. He contacted Cabinet d'Ormane for collection.
A rapid process, from out of court discussions to legal proceedings. Cabinet d'Ormane set up a monthly repayment plan by bank transfer, an approach accepted by the debtor. Having met 3 instalments, he stopped his transfers without explanation. He refused any form of contact, hoping the Italian manufacturer would not take legal action on account of his geographic distance.
Provision of an enforcement order by the Commercial Court. Reacting immediately to this radio silence, Cabinet d'Ormane took the debtor to court, with all the supporting documentation: purchase order, delivery advice and invoices. The court issued the enforcement order. Faced with the debtor's refusal to obey, Cabinet d'Ormane then had the bailiff put a lien on the bank account at an opportune moment, a few days after the summer sales had started.
Following this distraint order, the debtor himself proposed paying off the outstanding balance of unpaid invoices in several monthly instalments. The matter ended to our client's satisfaction In this case Cabinet d'Ormane knew when to choose the "right moment" to garnish the debtor's bank account and force him to pay quickly. Another proof of Cabinet d'Ormane's skills: its intimate knowledge of how different sectors in the economy operate.
Debt collection at the gallop!
An Indian client, a manufacturer of leather saddles for horses, claimed that despite its chasing up letters, its French importer was refusing to pay it € 15,473 of duly substantiated invoices. It was using the usual arguments of financial difficulties and other specious claims. Cabinet d'Ormane took over the matter and implemented a rapid and effective process to collect this debt:
- Final demand by registered post
- Out of court negotiations but a stubborn refusal by the debtor
- Court summons
- Seizure following favourable court ruling
Forced by the court decision the importer settled its debt in 3 payments and our Indian client had recovered its money within a few months.
A bit later, another Indian company contacted Cabinet d'Ormane about the refusal of this same importer to pay it € 11,000. An unexpected coincidence, because it was the previous creditor who had been satisfied with our services and had recommend it to contact Cabinet d'Ormane. The moment this debtor received the demand from Ormane in this new case, it immediately sent the amount demanded. Efficiency and reputation have their effect!
Through its national and international skill, Cabinet d'Ormane has all the legal and financial facilities to collect the debts for international clients, who are put off by the distance and the complexities of French law, and often hesitate to collect.
