Unfortunately, not all customers pay on time and in full when a payment is due. If you are having a problem recovering money you are owed from customers or other businesses, contact the experienced debt recovery solicitors at Lanyon Bowdler based at our offices throughout Shropshire and Herefordshire, in the towns of Shrewsbury, Hereford, Ludlow, Oswestry and Telford. For legal advice please contact us on 0800 652 3372.
We are well equipped to deal with those customers who are always away when you call, can't be reached or seem to have gone on an indefinite holiday. Every hour you spend chasing these individuals is an hour you could have spent winning new orders and fulfilling promises to paying clients - why not let our DebtSolve team handle it?
Commercial Debt Recovery from DebtSolve
Our DebtSolve team is composed of experienced commercial debt recovery lawyers, and has the capability to remove the burden of chasing bad debts helping you keep your business' cash flow healthy.
- If you contact us by fax, post or e-mail before 3.30pm, we will contact your debtors demanding payment that day. Many debts are solved in this manner, but if necessary we will take your debtor to court in order to extract the payment.
- If we are forced to use court proceedings, rest assured that we have all the skills and resources to ensure your case is successful - we use up-to-date computer software supplied by one of the leaders in the field to provide an efficient and cost-effective debt recovery and court preparation service to our clients.
- In the event that your debtor files a defence, your case will be passed over to our specialist commercial Dispute Resolution department, where it will be dealt with by a lawyer experienced in handling disputed debts.
We can provide you with a report on how you can improve your systems to minimise the risk of bad debts. We can also prepare a monthly report with details of the progress we have made on all debts we have been asked to recover for you.
We provide flexible, bespoke debt recovery solutions to all our clients, judging each case on its own merits and preparing a recovery method that is appropriate for your situation.
Our debt recovery specialists are friendly, approachable and will work hard to recover your debts as swiftly as possible. Once your debts have been recovered, we can provide you with constructive, easy to understand advice about avoiding bad debts in future.
Cost-effective Debt Recovery Solutions
In some cases, for work done before issuing legal proceedings we charge a percentage of any money recovered. If we are unsuccessful at that stage you pay nothing. In other cases we charge a small fixed fee. If we do issue court proceedings we charge fixed fees while the case is dealt with on our DebtSolve system. Most of these fees can be passed on to the debtor.
