The debt execution, the seizure and the bankruptcy are the legal means to execute monetary debts. Any company or individual may have to initiate a debt execution procedure against debtors or to participate to a seizure or a bankruptcy procedure against them. A sequestration is also possible in certain cases.
Conversely, any company or individual may face a debt execution procedure and be submitted to a seizure, a bankruptcy or a sequestration.
Once initiated, the execution of a debt may be interrupted by an opposition from the debtor. In such case, a creditor will have to initiate a release procedure or will have to introduce legal proceedings in order to cancel the opposition and obtain the execution of his claim.
A seizure or bankruptcy procedure may also create complex situations. It is not unusual that a creditor be required to challenge other creditors’ claims in a seizure or a bankruptcy procedure, to replace a bankrupt company in an ongoing lawsuit, to initiate debt executions against a bankrupt company’s debtors or a liability lawsuit against its former board members or directors. Such procedures may raise several complex legal issues and generally require detailed legal advice and support.
