Recovery of debts

We can assist in recovering any debt owed to you, including small & large debts, secured & unsecured debts. We will provide you with advice on the most cost-effective way to recover what is owed to you.

Statements of Claim

In some cases, it becomes necessary to commence legal proceedings to recover a debt. Our team are very experienced in preparing statements of claim and obtaining a judgment that can be enforced against debtors in a cost-effective and timely manner.


Obtaining a Court order or judgment against a debtor is not always the end of the story. Our team can assist you in enforcing a Court order or judgment and recovery of the money owed through the Court process and other collection methods.


If you are owed a debt by an individual who has failed to pay, you may be able to commence a bankruptcy process against them. The process includes issuing a Bankruptcy Notice to the person and can result in a third party managing their assets to pay your debt.

Statutory demands

If a company owes a creditor a debt, that creditor may issue a statutory demand on the company. If a company does not pay the debt or negotiate the debt, the company will be deemed insolvent and may be wound up. Our team can assist creditors and companies with issuing or negotiating a statutory demand. Incorrectly issuing a statutory demand or ignoring it can have severe consequences for both the creditor and company.
