Attachment Law

Does a debtor refuse to pay and do you want to seize the debtor’s property? Have you entered into a purchase agreement and does the seller refuse to deliver to you? Then it is wise to engage our specialists in the field of attachment law.

What is attachment law?

Attachment law is a part of civil law. It regulates the possibilities to recover from a party that does not pay a debt or does not fulfill another obligation.

Provisional attachment is a preliminary measure to prevent a debtor from hiding or moving his assets before a judge has made a decision. This ‘freezes’ the debtor’s assets, so that they remain available for the party who has filed a claim.

Execution attachment can only be made after the judge has made a decision and the debtor still does not pay. Attachment in this situation means that the claim can actually be collected from the debtor’s assets. His properties can be sold and the proceeds can be used to collect the claim.
