HomeCase studiesAchieving full recovery of a debt through a winding up petition and safeguarding the money from a supporting creditor

Why the client needed our help

Our client, a recruitment company in the construction industry, needed our help recovering a debt of £4,393 following non-payment of a temporary labour service.

How we helped

First, we sent the debtor a letter before action. When they failed to respond to this, we promptly drafted a winding up petition which was then issued at court and served on the debtor company by our process server.

The outcome

We obtained full payment of the debt – plus all legal costs – within seven days.

Once the debt and costs were paid in full, the winding up petition was dismissed form court and our client’s money was fully safeguarded, with the danger of a supporting creditor avoided.
