Enforcement of claims

The Law Firm Szabó and Szalai has outstanding professional and practical knowledge also in the field of non-contentious proceedings; we have developed an effective and proven method for the quickest, smoothest and most (cost) efficient enforcement of claims.

Secondly, our method is based on avoiding protracted, costly and time-consuming litigation.

In relation to claims management (settlement disputes, debt recovery), the non-contentious procedure is the notarial order for payment procedure and the enforcement procedure that can be initiated on the basis of a final order for payment and an enforceable instrument, but it can also include, of course, the initiation of a payment notice and, ultimately, the initiation of liquidation proceedings.

Our aim is to ensure the productive and continuous management of our Clients, to recover their outstanding debts, to eliminate their debts where possible, or at least to reduce them to a manageable level.

Based on our experience, only in half of the cases do the above non-contentious procedures lead to a result, whether it is a matter of voluntary performance, acknowledgement of debt, assumption of debt, or agreement between the parties; in other cases, the initiation of litigation i.e. the filing of a statement of claim or written statement of defence within a short period of time, after the legal basis and amount of the claim is disputed, i.e. the a statement of opposition against the order for payment is submitted, is unavoidable.

It is also not unusual for a particular enforcement action – which requires even more specialised legal knowledge – to become unavoidable. Typical enforcement actions are actions for the termination or limitation of enforcement and actions of replevin.

The Law Firm provides complex representation in both non-contentious claims management and cases turning into a contentious action. We emphasise that we represent not only the claimant (creditor, person seeking enforcement) but also the obligor (debtor).


The philosophy and professional credo of Law Firm Szabó and Szalai is quality, credibility and precision.

We strive to meet the needs of our Clients in the fastest, simplest and most efficient way by providing premium quality service with the utmost discretion.

We are convinced that building and maintaining a partnership with our Clients is essential for success, so we always plan for the long term, and we strive to provide the widest possible scope of legal services.
