Debt recovery can be sensitive and stressful for all involved. You want the most cost-effective and timely way of resolving outstanding debts. We can help you do that with honest, trustworthy advice. If you shouldn’t proceed, if there is another action you could take, or if another professional is better placed to help you, we will let you know.

Costs

Winding up proceedings in the Companies Court can be a much quicker and effective way to recover undisputed debts rather than the procedures in the County and High Court.

Our regulators require us to provide pricing information on our website for some of the areas of work that we undertake, we therefore set out pricing for these areas, as well as those areas of work that we undertake on a fixed fee basis here. For a quotation on fees on the other areas of work we cover, you will need to contact the teams directly to discuss your circumstances.

Timescale

The time it will take to recover the debt can vary widely from case to case. In some cases, payment will be received following the service of a Letter of Claim in which case the matter could be resolved in 4 – 8 weeks. However, if the claim is defended and proceeds to a full trial, it could take up to a year, or even longer, for the matter to reach a conclusion. There are often delays to Court proceedings which are outside of the parties’ control and are due to Court backlogs.
