Commercial Debt Recovery

Cash is king for businesses of all sizes. Which is why having an effective credit control process – with strong, efficient debt recovery solicitors on your side – is vital for your success.

Our team specialises in commercial debt recovery and works with businesses across the UK and overseas to track down and recover unpaid invoices and other debts. We act for a broad range of businesses – from SMEs to listed companies – successfully recovering debts of all types. What’s more, because many in our team are 100% dedicated to debt recovery, our clients benefit from a fast and highly efficient service.

We use technology to provide cost-effective services, making us well placed to assist with bulk debt recovery, as well as one-off instructions.

Our simple fee structure consisting of an initial set-up fee and commission charged on a “no collection, no fee” basis, you can rest assured that there will be no hidden fees for any pre-legal action.

If needed, we also have the support of our colleagues in the Dispute Resolution team. For us, no claim is too big or complex.

Feedback from client

…having used solicitors before which seemed to be a clunky and extremely expensive way to recover debt with no real success, I can confidently say that you guys have restored my faith and I look forward to our next case together.
