Debt Collection

When you decide to use Michael O’Shea & Company to act on your behalf we will discuss how best to tailor the action we take to your specific requirements. The services we offer include:-

Pre-legal actions:

These may include credit checks, telephone calls and the issue of formal letters of demand.

Issue of proceedings:

A Summons is issued and served on the debtor by post.


In undefended cases we would obtain Judgment through the Court Office without you having to attend Court.

Foreign Judgments:

We can apply to the High Court to have Judgments obtained outside Ireland (but within the EU) deemed valid within our jurisdiction.

Registration of Judgment:

Where appropriate, once a Judgment has been obtained we may register this Judgment in the Trade Gazettes.

Lodgment with the Sheriff:

The Sheriff is the person with whom the Judgment is lodged to seize goods to discharge the debt.


We can obtain a Court Order directing the debtor to pay this debt in fixed instalments and advise generally as to other methods of enforcement such as applying to have a Receiver appointed by way of equitable execution, registering the Judgment as a Judgment Mortgage, seeking Orders against third parties.

Judgment Mortgages:

We can register the Judgment as a mortgage on property owned by the debtor.

Orders for Sale:

We may seek an Order on foot of such a Judgment Mortgage to sell property and discharge the debt.


Where the debtor has insufficient funds we may apply to have him/her declared a bankrupt.


We can supply general and detailed company search reports.
