Else Solicitors have collectively over 30 years’ experience in acting for business clients collecting overdue accounts and bad debts.
Inevitably from time to time this involves clients who will have claims against existing clients of the firm or close associates of the firm such as accountants and other professionals that the firm deal with.
In circumstances where there is a conflict of interest Else cannot act, however where there is a connection but no strict conflict of interest, Else have the experience to resolve matters quickly.
Recently a client had provided services to a professional practice and had not been paid. We were instructed to collect the debt and having conducted a conflict check it was clear that we did not have a conflict of interest preventing us from acting but because we know the debtor firm well. We were able to call the debtor firm on an informal basis to discuss the issue. The two parties spoke to each other straight away and the debt was paid.
