How we can help you?

  • Do you have an unpaid debt and are you not sure if you should request payment or wait given the current circumstances?
  • Do you have a judgment but are unsure what to next to get paid?
  • Do you have a judgment but have no current address for your debtor and believe it will be too expensive to locate an address?


  • Contact us for assistance.
  • The longer that you leave a debt the harder it will be for the agent to recover the debt;
  • We are legal professionals who have experience in the Debt Recovery area;
  • We can instruct an agent to undertake a trace using a search online at a no trace no fee basis. So, if they are unable to locate the debtor then you do not have to pay their fee and if they are successful their fees range from £50 to £75 plus vat;  
  • We have contacts with the enforcement agents to assist you with enforcing your judgment against a debtor; and,
  • Our fees are flexible to fit you from fixed fee per letter, no win no fees (and fees paid if we make any recoveries) to reasonable hourly rates.
