Why the client needed our help

Our client, a recruitment company, needed assistance recovering a £12,739 debt relating to the non-payment of temporary labour invoices.

How we helped

We issued a winding up petition against the debtor after they refused to respond to a letter before action. The petition was issued at court and served on the debtor company by our process server.

The outcome

The debtor paid their debt and our client’s legal costs within 11 days. The winding up petition was then dismissed from court and our client’s money safeguarded in full to avoid the potential threat of a supporting creditor.

Extremely thorough, professional and speedy, and the fees were much more reasonable than the competition. Highly recommended
