CLA GETS RESULTS NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES!
We are delighted to be sharing with you today another pay out from Anfi.
This time it is our Dutch clients who will be celebrating their success over Anfi and breathing a sigh of relief that the process is now complete.
We want to use this case to give you a real insight into all the hard work and effort that goes into recovering funds for our clients, and to see the obstacles and challenges we face – especially where Anfi is concerned…….
As we have stated previously Anfi employ numerous stalling tactics to delay paying out any monies for as long as possible but this case proves that the whole team at CLA are totally committed to delivering results NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES.
Our client won their case in the court of the First Instance and were awarded 103,820€.
Of course Anfi appealed this decision.
Our response to the appeal was to request a provisional execution of the funds until such time as the sentence is confirmed in the High Court.
Again Anfi appealed this request claiming that the case was not yet final. But the court rejected their appeal and placed an embargo on their bank accounts.
Following the order to embargo the accounts of Anfi we were informed by the court that 7.849€ had been seized…………. There was no way a company that size had only 7.849€ in their bank account!!!
At this point it was obviously that Anfi were just giving everyone the run around so we immediately asked the court to investigate the assets of Anfi.
Funnily enough, following our request to investigate the assets of Anfi the court managed to seize a further 27.367€…………again such a small amount form such a big company and as you will see for the attached documents, this wasn’t just one amount, it’s made up of several smaller seizures.……….
As we were still 68.604€ short and firmly believed Anfi were making a mockery of the whole system we appeal again to the court to try and speed up the recovery process.
Over the following months the court were unable to secure any more funds from Anfi. We suspected that Anfi were hiding monies…………………
Following our suspicions we asked the court to appoint and official independent administrator to look into the affairs of Anfi and to establish if they had a genuine inability to pay our clients the money they were owed of if there was another reason………………
The court agreed.
Meanwhile we received a positive sentence back from the High Court who dismissed the appeal of Anfi (as we expected) and confirmed the ruling of the court of the First Instance.
We also receive a court date regarding the court appointed independent administrator and Anfi and its shareholders are informed. The hearing date is set for the 11th March 2020.
Low and behold…..on the 10th March…….ONE day prior to an independent administrator being appointed by the court Anfi make a VOLUNTARY PAYMENT OF 68,604€
Since claiming victory in the court of the First Instance CLA filed 176 DOCUMENTS in our quest to secure our clients funds.
We hope from this you can see more clearly now the painstaking process we have to go through to ensure our clients get the justice they deserve.
Congratulations to the whole team at CLA especially to all our Lawyers. Their relentless pursuit of justice and the professionalism in which they approach every single obstacle thrown at them makes them worthy recipients of the accolade – experts in the field of timeshare litigation.
In this particular case congratulations to our Claims Consultant Evi Richter German / Spanish Lawyer Christine Ihmann and to our Head Lawyer Eva Gutierrez.
