COMMERCIAL LITIGATION AND DEBT COLLECTION

Our expertise in cost efficient commercial litigation and debt collection is available for individuals, small businesses and corporate clients.

There are not many simple answers when all attempts at negotiating a satisfactory resolution in a dispute have failed and it is necessary to consider Court action. The involvement of lawyers at an early stage can help by using the correct official protocols or employing tried and tested pre-action techniques, particularly where the issue is an unpaid debt. But if Court proceedings are unavoidable it is necessary to act promptly and react quickly to the demands of the Court timetable and Client requirements where the complexity of pleadings, statements and disclosure of documents are paramount.We pride ourselves on keeping to deadlines.

We will gladly consider your case on a preliminary basis before going to Court and do appreciate that the costs of litigation are high, but our approach is designed to keep these to a minimum.

Defending cases requires the same attention – if you do not have a case, then we will advise you and help you save Court costs by achieving a swift settlement if at all possible.

We only act in niche debt recovery cases, and try to avoid court proceedings where possible, by the use of Statutory Demands and insolvency processes, personal bankruptcy or company insolvency, where appropriate

Anyone wishing to proceed with a claim should note that:

  • Court costs vary according to the amount owed. The VAT element of our fee cannot be reclaimed from your debtor.
  • Interest and compensation may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.


Our work includes:

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing documentation
  • Undertaking appropriate searches
  • Sending a letter before action/Statutory Demand
  • If required drafting and issuing claim
  • Where no Acknowledgment of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter Judgment in default
  • If payment is not received in accordance with the judgment, providing you with advice on next steps and likely costs
  • If enforcement action is needed, the matter will take longer to resolve, and involve costs of enforcement e.g. bailiffs, bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings
