Our debt collection and enforcement service offers:
For more information, please get in touch.
We offer a highly efficient debt collection and enforcement service, making use of our sophisticated case management system. Predominantly, the work we do is under contracts with commercial partners and our charges in those situations are determined by those contracts.
We also provide services to individual businesses and the charges set out below apply. Please contact us for more information and a discussion about your requirements.
These fees apply where your claim relates to an unpaid invoice that is not disputed and excludes enforcement action. If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and, if necessary, provide you with revised advice about our fees, which could be for a fixed fee (e.g. if a one-off letter is required) or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.

It can take between one week and six months to resolve matters, depending on, for instance, whether or when the debtor responds and the speed at which the courts deal with the case, if it is necessary to issue court proceedings. If your entitlement to be paid is disputed or steps are needed to enforce payment of any judgment, it could take longer to resolve.
The work will be carried out by legally trained paralegals, members of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives or qualified solicitors, depending on the value and complexity of the work. Jonathan Calverley, a partner with more than 20 years’ experience of civil litigation, has overall responsibility for the team.
