Why the client needed our help

Our client, a well-known invoice finance company, needed our help recovering a debt of £8,140.

How we helped

The debtor refused to pay following a letter before action so we quickly served a statutory demand on them.

The outcome / significance to the client

The statutory demand led to the debt being paid in full along with all legal costs, meaning no cost to our client for the recovery process.

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.
