Unpaid debts are a major concern of businesses and individuals, often causing unwelcome cash flow problems which can have a multitude of ramifications. We understand the problems and concerns of clients facing this problem. We can work with you to obtain payment as quickly and cost effectively as possible. You are advised to keep a full record of your previous credit control steps which can be used as evidence and ensure that the debtor is fully advised of the threat of legal action.
We undertake a costs/benefit analysis with you and identify the strengths and any weaknesses of your case. We work with you to consider your options and an appropriate strategy. We understand that legal costs can be daunting. We will provide you with a detailed estimate of costs at the outset so there are no surprises; keep you informed as to costs and work with you to control them.
In addition to court action, we make full use of mediation when appropriate as this is a cost and time effective method to achieve settlement and allows you to keep in control. We will discuss the most suitable steps at all times to assist you in dealing with what can be a distressing time. Small Claims Court The small claims track is for claims of £10,000 or less.
In most small claims cases, the court will not order solicitors’ costs to be paid by the losing party. Therefore, claimants generally deal with a small claim themselves without solicitors. There is a lot of guidance available and claims can be issued online.
If you decide not to instruct us to handle the whole case in the light of the costs implications, we may still be able to assist by drafting the claim for you to submit. https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim-online https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk/web/mcol/welcome
