Whether you are a business or an individual, it is essential that your unpaid debts are collected as soon as possible. We have extensive experience of recovering debts on behalf of our clients and our pro-active and efficient service ensures that those who owe you money are pursed to the fullest possible extent.
We fully understand that those chasing debts do not want to throw good money after bad. With that in mind we offer fixed price services which take the uncertainty out of your decision to use our Debt Collection team.
If the debt is not disputed we find that going down the bankruptcy route is the most effective way of recovering money. We offer fixed price services for those seeking to recover debts against both individual and company debtors. See our Insolvency Services for more information.
If there is a dispute as to the debt, it is more likely that you will need to sue the debtor. In situations where the debt is less than £10,000, we can offer you a fixed fee service for this procedure which is based on recovery using the Small Claims Court.
The Small Claims Court has its advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, those who find themselves in dispute over an amount of money which is £5,000 or less can see their cases pushed through Court without undue delay. On the other, the winning party is only able to recoup a small and fixed amount of legal costs. At Fortis Law we offer a fixed fee service for each step of your “small claim” which are calculated with reference to our usual hourly charges but at a substantially reduced rate. We have done this so our clients know exactly where they are at any stage in the proceedings and are able to make a fully informed decision about whether or not they want to pursue debts through the Small Claims Court.
From April 2013, the small claims limit will increase to £10,000. We like to have an eye on the future and it is for this reason that our fixed fee service applies to any claim for £10,000 or less. Contact us for a full breakdown of our fixed fee service.
Where the debt is more than £10,000, we will consider the
merits of your case and provide a full and detailed estimate
free of charge and without obligation.
