Debt Recovery

Will I need to go to court?

Over 95% of our debt recovery matters result in either a default judgment or a settlement and in these circumstances there is no hearing and no need for evidence to be given at Court.


What is involved?

Principal Lawyers will draft a statement of claim and all supporting documents necessary to enable default judgment to be entered in your favour. Prior to the issuing of any statement of claim, we will write to the debtor and furthermore we will send a letter after service of the statement of claim in an attempt to settle the matter without further expense. If the matter cannot be settled, we will pursue the matter until a judgment is entered in your favour.


What happens if the debtor does not pay on the judgement?

Once we have a judgment entered in your name by the Court and a debtor refuses to pay, it is then necessary to take separate enforcement procedures.

Principal Lawyers will discuss these enforcement options with you if and when the need arises. If in the event those enforcement proceedings are necessary, our lawyers will endeavour to tailor the best option to suit your individual circumstance.

In a nutshell, we offer the following enforcement procedures:

  1. Bankruptcy  Proceedings (for Individuals)
  2. Statutory Demands and subsequent Company Wind Up
  3. Examination orders and summonses
  4. Writs for levy of property
  5. Garnishee of earnings and/ or bank accounts

Hello Ethem

Thank you for all your effort and time spent with us over all the things that we have had you do for us over the last couple years and hopefully in the future where needed.

I just wanted to pass on my appreciation and thanks for your services for the purchase of our property. Both Rachel and I realise it was a difficult process with the banks but thank you for getting it done.
