Regulations on debt collection

In Japan, only lawyers are allowed to recover debts on behalf of a third party. Exceptionally, for certain types of debts such as loan claims held by financial institutions, debt collection companies that have obtained a license from the Ministry of Justice are allowed to collect[1]. Therefore, business debts such as sales proceeds can only be collected by lawyers like us.

Note:[1] The Act on Special Measures Concerning Claim Management and Collection Businesses (Act No. 126 of 1998)
