SOLICITORS AND CHAMBERS

Debtor tracing

Our debtor/subject tracing service is widely used by businesses and professionals. It’s essential that you know where your debtor/subject/respondent is before issuing any sort of legal proceedings against them. Our enquiries are fully compliant with current statute and legislation, and provide clarity in a timely fashion.

With UK-based instructions carried out on a “no find no fee” basis, and worldwide tracing also available, obtaining a new address for your debtor is quick and simple.

Pre-Sue & investigative reports

A pre-sue or financial background report is an essential part of the litigation or debt recovery process – there’s no point pursuing a debtor through expensive and time consuming litigation, just to find out that there’s little chance of successful enforcement.

We often find that clients tend to focus on the strength of their claim; which means that the actual ability of the debtor to pay the debt, or the most effective enforcement option to use, is overlooked. Don’t litigate blind – a small investment early on may well save you/your client thousands of pounds.

We offer several types of pre-sue reporting, and the prices reflect the amount of time that our staff will spend looking into the subjects’ background and asset base. Reports are tailor made to your specific requirements; all it takes is a quick call to discuss your needs.

Process Serving

Correct and compliant service of legal process is a critical element of any litigation or enforcement. Our team can effect service on a debtor or respondent anywhere in the UK or overseas. For items such as Witness Summons, we are also pleased to provide the witness with conduct money if required.

Our service staff are typically enforcement agents or retired Police officers, and so understand both the importance of effective service; and the relevant legislation surrounding the provision of statements and affidavits that are practice-compliant.

Typical instructions include Statutory Demands, Bankruptcy Petitions, Winding Up Petitions, Injunctions, Witness Summons and Power of Entry Notices. We can act upon your instructions within a standard turnaround period of 14 days, or handle more urgent matters when required. Documents can be sent to us by email, mail or courier – or we can collect them from you in some circumstances and for an additional fee.

All it takes to instruct us is one simple phone call.

Specialist Enforcement

We operate the UK’s only dedicated unit for enforcing specialist Warrants & Orders; such as:

  • Search & Seizure/Anton Pillar Orders
  • Provisional Liquidation & Interim Receiver Orders
  • Proceeds of Crime Act
  • Warrants under s.365 & 366 IA86, and other similar scenarios

Whilst there are many very capable High Court Enforcement Agents out there, who execute money and property possession orders with diligence and expertise; they are not experienced in more specialist areas such as Insolvency. Neither are they able to offer the investigative or surveillance services, pre-application, that are often so key to obtaining the Order you seek.

Clients will know that obtaining a successful outcome requires considerable experience and planning, together with the ability to move quickly where necessary. Failure to consider the smallest of detail can result in a poor and often costly outcome. Our team is renowned for its expertise in this specialist area; backed up by numerous client testimonials and even press coverage.
