DESCRIPTION OF THE STEP TRAINEESHIP PROVIDER

Business to business debt recovery, both in the Netherlands and internationally.

Bierens is the largest law firm specialised in debt recovery in the Netherlands. Bierens acts on behalf of small and medium-sized companies, large enterprises, as well as multinationals, based on a “no win, no fee” philosophy guiding the business.

Bierens is unique in comparison to other organisations in that it inter alia takes care of both the out-of-court phase and the judicial debt recovery process. Thereby, Bierens has been successful in settling 90% of the cases out of court, thus being an attractive competitor to traditional debt collection agencies and bailiffs.
