Swedish firm digs into bankruptcy debts

A Swedish legal firm is being sharply criticized by lawyers and debt collection companies for sending bills to former company owners and ex-board members years after their firms have gone into bankruptcy.

Those receiving bills as long as ten years after a bankruptcy say they are being asked to pay old debts with their own private funds and maintain they are being described as economic criminals.

The critics argue that the firm has specialized in the dubious area of digging into long-forgotten debts but the firm rejects the criticism – maintaining that it is simply carrying out orders from the clients.
