Dispute Resolution & Claims Management

Else’s expert debt recovery solicitors have considerable experience when it comes dispute resolution and claims management.

When clients fail to pay, or continually pay late, you need effective action to keep your business on track.

Swiftly issuing a claim against a debtor has impact and affirms your intention of getting paid.

You are entitled to add interest, legal costs, and late payment compensation. A court judgement can be obtained and subsequently enforced if your debtor does not respond.

You will find that issuing a claim often invokes payment from the client. If the debtor wants to dispute your claim, there is a strict timetable to follow which prevents the issue dragging on indefinitely.

SRA Transparency Rules: Debt Recovery Process Pathways & Charges

What are the SRA Transparency Rules?
The SRA Transparency Rules set out the information that SRA authorised firms should make available to clients and potential clients and form part of the Better Information, more choice: Post consultation rules. The rules aim to ensure people have accurate and relevant information about a solicitor or firm when they are considering purchasing legal services and will help members of the public and small businesses make informed choices, improving competition in the legal market.

How we can help

At Else Solicitors we have a successful track record of dispute resolution and debt recovery.

Smaller businesses often find it an advantage to have someone else chasing up their debts so that they can concentrate on business.

  • Issuing claims.
  • Enforcing judgements including insolvency proceedings, winding up limited companies, and bankruptcy.

We understand that we are acting on your behalf and so we are happy to take instructions from you on how you want us to handle individual clients.

We can adopt a firm stance or work in a more friendly way as the situation requires.

Our team of debt recovery solicitors is committed to meeting your needs quickly, efficiently, and successfully.
