DEBT COLLECTION

Whether you are owed money and wish to recover debt owed to you, or whether you are defending a civil claim made against you, our debt recovery and debt collection specialists team can assist.

 

I Owe Someone

 

If you have received a letter of demand or a claim has been made against you or legal proceedings have been commenced against you for unpaid fees, you may have a valid defence in relation to the claim, if you object to or dispute the fees or wish to defend yourself in relation to the claim or in respect of the legal proceedings. 

We can assist you with the drafting of the Defence or other correspondence that will properly set out, after due investigation, not only the terms of the alleged contract (if any), but also what express and/or implied or other obligations arise on the part of your creditor. We can likewise identify instances where your creditor has defaulted in an express and/or implied obligation owed to you.

 

The very first letter that you send could be the very letter that hurts or prejudices your legal position significantly, often to such an extent that by the time you will decide to seek legal advice, significant damage may have been caused.

 

Not only might there be a defence available to you, but you may also be entitled to raise or bring a cross-claim against the creditor, seeking damages for what you have suffered as a result of the conduct of the creditor. 

 

We will assist you by:

1. Obtaining a detailed understanding of the issues;

2. Determining the legal rights and obligations between you and the creditor;

3. Providing you with a preliminary legal opinion on strategy and options;

4. Liaising with the creditor, to ensure minimization of risk or prejudice to your legal matter, with a view to ensuring that you assert any defence and/or cross claim you might have against the creditor.

 

 

I Need to Collect

 

We are in a uniquely strong position to discharge debt collection, as we are well acquainted with the processes involved in either the collection of the debt itself, or the options available through which the debt can be negotiated and/or settled as best as possible.

 

We can assist you with the drafting of the Statement of Claim or other correspondences to properly set out, after due investigation, not only what your customer or client expressly agreed to, but also what implied or other obligations arise on the part of your client/debtor, so that your business enjoys the benefit of having the highest prospect of recovering the debt from your client/debtor.  There will also often be other legal matters or issues that need to be considered, to ensure that the matter has been attended to with precision and that all relevant legal issues or concepts have been addressed.

 

The very first letter that you send could be the very letter that hurts or prejudices your legal position significantly, often to such an extent that by the time you will decide to seek legal advice, significant damage may have been caused.

 

If you are owed money by a former customer or client, it is imperative that you instruct a law firm to assist you to understand clearly the relationship between your business and the former customer or client, as well as properly articulate and plead your case against that former client or customer. Care also needs to be taken, when drafting any pleading, to mitigate against the risk of a potential cross-claim  that might be brought against you by any debtor who is seeking to deny any claim for unpaid invoices rendered for goods and/or services sold.
