Solicitor

If you’ve agreed to provide, or have provided, goods and/or services or a loan to a person or business and they’ve failed to pay you, then you may wish to issue court proceedings to recover what you’re owed.

Our experienced Dispute Resolution solicitors’ commercial awareness and legal knowledge means that they will  provide expert advice in pursuing claims for sums owed.

It’s important to take legal specialist advice from an early stage. This means that you avoid the pitfalls associated with using debt recovery firms who usually aren’t legally trained or qualified and do nothing but waste your time and money. Our specialist solicitors will use their knowledge of the law to ensure you receive what you’re rightfully owed. 

Debt enforcement solicitors

Our specialist lawyers can assist with the enforcement of a debt. Once a county court judgment (CCJ) has been obtained (with or without our assistance) we’ll be able to enforce the debt, using a variety of options, including:

  • A charging order and or order for sale
  • A third party debt order
  • A writ of control (to seize goods)
  • Bankruptcy/insolvency proceedings
  • Freezing injunction

"Your explanations and contextualising of a lot of the processes have really helped. You have been excellent and I couldn’t have hoped for better advice and representation.”

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to instruct a solicitor to enforce a debt I’m owed?

Not necessarily – if the claim is less than £10,000 and you issue court proceedings, then you’ll recover very limited fixed costs. As a result it may not be worthwhile instructing a solicitor as costs may exceed the amount you’re seeking.  However, if you want one-off, specific advice on how to complete a court form or the process then we may be able to assist. If the debt is more than £10,000 then you are likely to be awarded legal costs if the matter goes to court.

How do I issue a claim for a debt owed?

There is protocol that you should follow which will include, for example, sending a pre-action letter, before you issue a claim at court. Our solicitors can help advise you on the necessary steps and assist you with each of the steps along the way.
