Our Initial Step

As a first step, we’ll review the debt recovery process and decide upon the most appropriate method of recovery. We can save time by advising at the earliest possible stage whether it is appropriate to sue in the County or High Court, or immediately proceed to a winding up or bankruptcy petition. This decision is made not only by the size of the debt, but also by the legal entity of the debtor and whether liability for the debt is disputed.
