What We Do
Our Recoveries team, ranked in band 1 by Legal 500 2011, provides a one stop shop from ad-hoc initial advice through to judgments and enforcement. We undertake all methods of enforcement including charging orders and insolvency action.
The team uses a state of the art case management system and provides access to clients so they can view their cases 24/7 via the intranet and management information on the cases we handle. The team provides commercial advice at every stage of the litigation procedure.
We have a variety of funding packages for volume work and will discuss individual requirements. A one size fits all approach is not applied as each case is handled on its own merits.
