Debt recovery

Our solicitors at the Isle of Capri office have extensive experience in debt recovery matters.

Whether it is a small or a large debt, we can give you advice in relation to your prospects of recovery and the most suitable course of action for your situation, and promptly commence action to recover the debt owing by letter of demand or the filing of court proceedings.

We can also assist you if you have received a letter of demand or a Court claim for a debt allegedly owed by you. If necessary, we can assist you with a response or the preparation of a defence if the debt is disputed.

At Woods Hatcher we appreciate that recovery of debt can be a sensitive issue, so we do our best to take the stress out of it for you by dealing directly with debtors or creditors, or their solicitors, so you don’t have to.

We will always provide you with our honest advice as to the best approach in your particular circumstances, and use our substantial experience in this area to achieve the best and most cost-effective result for you.
