Why the client needed our help

Our client, a large collection agency, needed our assistance recovering outstanding accommodation charges on behalf of a customer.

How we helped

This was a small debt recovery claim worth under £10,000 and therefore eligible for resolution via the small claims court. As a result of the defendant’s behaviour during the course of the case, we recommended the preparation of a statement of costs in readiness for the hearing in an attempt to recover some costs for our client.

The outcome

We were successful with our client’s claim at trial – the debtor’s counterclaim was rejected and the judge ordered that our client be repaid in full, together with interest and a significant amount of costs.
