Debt Collection

Chasing debtors and resolving debt related disputes can be costly, stressful and time consuming.   We advise individuals and corporates on a number of options and processes for debt recovery.  In some cases, a letter of demand from your solicitor is all that is required to motivate a debtor into making payment.   If court proceedings are necessary, we can advise creditors on court processes, draft and file court proceedings and obtain and enforce court judgements against debtors. 


Other Matters

Other matters we act on include tort, employment, negligence, nuisance, contractual disputes, misrepresentation,  applications for summary judgement, specific performance,  injunctions and all civil litigation.    Please contact us to discuss.
