Debt Recovery

Our Debt Recovery department is recognised as one of the leading legal departments for the specialism in Essex and London by The Legal 500, an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK. They comment that we offer an 'excellent, client-led service' with 'efficient and competent legal advice'.

Unpaid bills for goods and services are a frequent issue for most businesses and can have a serious detrimental effect on your cash flow when clients and customers refuse to pay or delay in making payment. Recovering debts can be difficult, costly and time-consuming so having specialist support available can be critical to the smooth running of your business.

We can assist you at every stage of the debt recovery process. Often a formal solicitor’s letter will encourage a reluctant debtor into making payment.

Our experience shows that the sooner a debt is pursued, the greater the prospects of recovery. We aim to act as an extension of your own credit control process, recovering outstanding debt quickly and effectively.
