HomePrivate clientsDebt recoveryDebt collection and enforcement

Francis Wilks & Jones has a long and successful history of debt collection and enforcement work.

We act for a range of private clients on all matters relating to debt recovery and enforcement. We understand just how important it can be to recover monies owed to you personally and the effect that continued non-payment can have – both in one’s personal life but also often in a business setting too.

Debt collection services

When it comes to debt collection, we can act quickly and decisively to best recover your debt. Our broad range of experience means that we are aware of all the different tools available to us to collect debts as appropriate in your circumstances.

Where it is appropriate, we can use the more hard-hitting recovery tools against debtors such as

  • statutory demands;
  • bankruptcy petitions; and
  • winding up petitions.

If these are not appropriate, we are well versed in issuing claims within the county court and the high court. Our systems enable us to link directly to the money claims on-line system of the county court meaning we can issue claims quickly and cheaply and ensure that the papers are served on a defendant as soon as possible.

Equally we understand completely that not everyone wants to be involved in legal proceedings at all – so our team is well versed in all types of informal and formal settlement processes, such as mediation, Alternative Dispute Resolution and without prejudice meetings.

Enforcement services

We know all of the different enforcement options available and how best to use them to our clients’ benefit. These can involve

  • statutory demands;
  • bankruptcy petitions;
  • winding up petitions;
  • high court enforcement officers;
  • charging orders;
  • third party debt orders; an
  • attachment of earning orders.

or indeed, a combination of the above.  We always consider each client’s individual claim and circumstances before making the right enforcement decision.


Whatever your requirements, we have the team at Francis Wilks & Jones who can assist you. Call us now for your friendly consultation.
