The 3 Steps of Debt Recovery

Our 3-step process to recovering your debts helps save time and money by trying to avoid court proceedings. These steps are:

1. Pre-Litigation: A Letter Before Action

A strongly worded letter from a Solicitor and the threat of Court proceedings often prompts payment from a bad debtor. If we can recover your debt with a letter, you can avoid having to take action through the Court, which can be costly and time consuming. We offer a fixed fee for this service which you can learn about here.

2. A County Court Claim*

If the debtor does not respond to the letter before action, we can prepare your claim and obtain a County Court judgment against your debtor. We will always consider the value of your claim and ensure that the costs of recovery are proportionate to the amount you are seeking to recover. We offer a fixed fee for this service.

3. Enforcement

Once you have a judgment, this unfortunately does not guarantee that the debtor will pay. There are various ways we can enforce your judgment so that your business receives what it is owed.

If you would like more information about how we can help your business bring in bad debts, please contact Neil Largan.
