Commercial Debt Recovery

For all businesses the successful control of cashflow and efficient management of debtors is crucial.

Our service is partner led and is devoted to meeting the needs of large commercial organisations operating on a national basis with a high volume of transactions.  We recognise that costs certainty is important for your business planning.  We agree fixed charges with clients.  Our lawyers are supported by a computerised case management technology.   This means efficient cost-effective handling of matters.  Reporting requirements are established with each client.  Our aim is to provide clients with the reporting facilities that they want, when they want them.  Our team is supported by our Commercial Dispute Resolution and Insolvency Departments when necessary.  This capability allows us to continue acting for clients if cases become defended and to provide advice and representation when debtors become insolvent.
