Corporate Debt Recovery/Insolvency
Family and Divorce Law
Landlord and Tenant
We appreciate that litigation is an expensive and time consuming process which often leaves all
parties, including the winner, feeling dissatisfied.
Our approach, therefore, is to explore with clients from the outset what their objectives are in any
dispute and to seek to identify the speediest and cost effective route to that end.
If litigation proves inevitable, we seek to establish with our clients a strategy to achieve agreed goals, which we keep under review at each stage of the litigation process, balancing costs with achievable results.
In England only a small percentage of disputed cases result in a full trial at Court and whilst we are well equipped to deal with the cases which go that far, and have an extremely high success rate, we pride ourselves in our ability to achieve the best possible settlements for our clients.
We have experience in handling a wide range of matters from major disputes to simple debt collection. We have particular expertise in the following areas:
- Commercial Disputes
- Contractual Disputes
- Debt Claims
- Libel (Defamation and Slander)
- Landlord and Tenant
- Professional Negligence
- Probate Disputes
- Welfare Benefits
- White-collar crime
- Fraud, Income tax, PAYE and VAT investigations
- Representations in Magistrates/Crown Court
We deal with all aspects of debt collection from small debts to large sums. Having secured a Judgment on your behalf, we can also advise you on the most appropriate and cost effective method of enforcing your debt including:
• Application for a Charging Order.
• Levying execution by the Court Bailiffs
• Statutory Demand
• Voluntary Legal Charge
• Attachment of Earnings Order
• Third Party Debt Order
• Bankruptcy Proceedings
Our insolvency team is highly experienced in working to extremely tight deadlines. We also have considerable experience of advising liquidators, administrators, receivers, trustees and supervisors in a wide range of matters.
Our team also represents and advises companies and individuals in recovery programs, thus enabling many clients to reach agreements with creditors so that liquidation or bankruptcy is avoided. We have developed over the years an established network of contacts with other professionals involved in this field and can call upon the services of insolvency practitioners, banks, valuers and investigators to assist our clients wherever appropriate.
We were also authorised to undertake debt collection work on behalf of HM Treasury Solicitor throughout England & Wales.
