Cabinet FÉRAL acts as plaintiff and defendant in all proceedings related to the enforcement of judgments and the preservation of its clients’ rights.

Obtaining a favourable court decision is one thing – obtaining effective enforcement by the opponent is another. FÉRAL’s lawyers put their skills in enforcement at the service of their clients, both as plaintiffs and defendants, in all proceedings relating to the enforcement of judgments or rulings, including those concerning the enforcement in France of foreign decisions or vice versa.

On the claim side, the firm uses all available procedures to preserve its clients’ rights: provisional enforcement, protective measures, seizure of assets, seizure for sale, penalty payments, etc.

In defence, these same skills are used to serve the debtor’s interests: release of protective measures, stopping provisional execution, requesting payment deadlines, etc.

The firm’s lawyers are also used to seeking amicable agreements between debtors and creditors regarding the enforcement of court decisions (settlement agreements, payment schedules, etc.).
