Why the client needed our help

Our client, a construction company, had a county court judgment (CCJ) against them for a debt they had already settled. We had actually acted against the company on a separate matter but, impressed with how we had handled that, they turned to us for help here.

How we helped

After the client provided evidence that the debt in question had indeed already been settled, we began liaising with the other side to obtain an agreement for the CCJ to be removed. We then filed the necessary paperwork with the courts, including a consent order for the dismissal, which first had to be signed by the other side. We kept our client full informed throughout the process.

The outcome

The other side agreed to sign the consent order for the CCJ dismissal which was subsequently approved by the court. To our client’s relief, the CCJ was set aside.

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