Like most businesses, solicitors are not immune to unpaid fees. However, we appreciate that not all solicitors have the expertise or time to collect their unpaid invoices or disbursements.
We are also aware that solicitors will have no wish to pass their debt collection to another ‘rival firm’; this is where we can help.
Our Director, Paul Davies spent more than 20 years managing the debt recovery departments of 2 leading Southampton law firms and has been personally recommended, on several occasions, in the Legal 500.
Paul is one of the most experienced legal collection professionals in the area and his time in private practice provides us with an understanding of both the legal market and the working practices of law firms.
We are aware of the various solicitor fee arrangements, including Conditional fee agreements (CFAs) and Damages-based agreements (DBAs) and have experience of dealing with client disputes and those clients seeking detailed assessment of fees, the time limits involved and the costs consequences.
We are acutely aware of the SRA Principles and we understand the potential conflict between the need to recover fees and the desire to maintain your reputation.
We are never aggressive or abusive and will not use illegal methods or intimidating behaviour. In short, we uphold your professionalism throughout the collection process.
I have been using Debtcol for many years. I would not even dream of asking a solicitor to chase a debt now. They are excellent.Chartered Accountant,
