Debt Recovery - Why you need a business lawyer
Helping you create a debt recovery plan
Managing your business’ debts is crucial to the success of your enterprise. We are experienced in creating debt recovery plans that are timely, cost effective, strategic and solution focussed to give you the best chance of recovering rightful money that is owed to you and your business.
Providing advice and representation
We can provide expert advice and representation in debt recovery proceedings across a broad range of industries and professional settings. Our advice covers your legal rights and the pursuit of debt owed as well as preparing appropriate legal correspondence such as letters of demand to be sent to debtors.
Assisting you in making debt recovery claims
Whenever a debt recovery dispute arises, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. Getting this right can make all the difference between resolving your matter quickly and easily or being required to commence formal proceedings against a debtor.
Helping you prepare letters of demand
Letters of demand make final demands to an individual owing debt, asking them to make payment to avoid legal proceedings. We can assist you with your debt recovery needs, including the preparation of letters of demand, and where applicable tracing the location of debtors who are difficult to locate.
