Why the client needed our help

We collect many £’000’s of unpaid debts for our clients every year – however big or small the business, getting paid is always crucial to ensure its’ success. Debt Recovery is our expertise at FWJ.

We recently helped a florist with recovery of an unpaid invoice.

How we helped

We sent the debtor a ‘letter before action’ seeking payment.

Quick, efficient and cost effective, we can as easily deal with recovery of a one-off debt or undertake a whole ledger review.

The outcome

The debt was paid in full.

Getting us involved to ensure debts don’t remain unpaid is a smart move – and means you can get on with business, safe in the knowledge that we’re getting on with getting your outstanding invoices paid.

As credit and collection professionals ourselves, we have to be pretty discerning about the lawyers we retain so it speaks volumes that Francis Wilks & Jones have been our retained solicitors for many years now. Thoroughly professional, the firm has a wide knowledge and experience of the legalities of the debt recovery scene. Sound advice is always available and provides crucial support with some of the more difficult decisions that we have to make.
