I am available to transmit my knowledge to you and your employees through the means of lectures and training. Some of the topics have already been prepared by me. However, my training can also be tailored to your company or your needs. Please contact me.

Possible topics

  • Debt collection (conclusion of the contract, invoice, debt enforcement and bankruptcy)
  • How do I protect myself as a creditor? Surety, guarantee, entry into debt, enforceable public deed, etc.
  • Screening your business operations from a legal perspective: what can be improved to facilitate the enforcement of claims?
