Taking legal action to recover your debts

After using pre-legal services to try to recover debts, we will review the situation with you and make recommendations as to whether or not to take legal action through the Courts.

Debt recovery Court action 

If you decide to take Court action, then our debt recovery solicitors in Derby, Leicester and Nottingham will pursue the debt for the original amount plus any interest or compensation that you are due.

In circumstances where Court action is required, we recommend that we carry out appropriate searches to check the credit rating of your debtor before you commence Court action. Additional fees will be payable for these searches – but we will discuss them with you before they are incurred.
