A team working exclusively to help organisations get paid more quickly

Debt Recovery

Prompt payment is key to the success of any business. We work exclusively to help businesses and organisations get paid quicker. We deal with everything from invoice management through credit control to telephone collections to legal recovery doing as much or as little as you need us to. We are also experienced in recovering money from insolvent companies.

Even if your company has an established credit control or finance department, we can provide cost effective services to support your existing team and take the strain out of chasing overdue accounts. We will use our systems and technology to help you achieve better cash flow.

Our client base varies from large national and blue chip PLCs to owner/managed enterprises throughout the UK. We also represent utility companies and have developed a particular specialism in acting for lenders and debt purchase companies. We can help you regardless of whether you deal with consumers or operate in the business to business arena. We do everything possible to avoid disputes but if they do occur we conduct them professionally and robustly, whilst always striving to ensure that the action remains cost-effective.

We work collaboratively with you to understand your business and the issues you face before advising you on the best course of action. Our charges are transparent and will be agreed with you before we commence any work. Charges can be agreed as fixed fees or as a percentage of collections, where we share the risk with you.

Our experienced team also understands the importance of managing your company’s reputation. We have a dedicated performance management and compliance team to ensure that everything we do for you is of the highest standard. We can also advise you on best practice, helping you put in place systems so you can keep control of your credit management.

We are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority as well as by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Calls to and from the Debt Recovery Team may be recorded for monitoring and training purposes.
