As our solicitor* is focused exclusively on the area of debt litigation he has built up unrivalled expertise over many business sectors. This experience allows us to tailor our approach to the individual debt to get best results.
The majority of debt collection agencies and law firms have a default process for debt litigation being claim and enforcement by county court enforcement officer. Sterling use this process in many cases but analyse each case individually and use other methods where more appropriate. Often the explicit threat of the most appropriate legal action will persuade the debtor to pay. We have experience of all of the following methods :
- Personal service of a statutory demand for debts over £750.
- Adjudication process for construction sector debts.
- Adding a second defendant for claims where there is a dispute over liability.
- Oral examination orders where the debtor claims to have no assets
- European orders for payment
- Bankruptcy proceedings
We are confident that Sterling Legal offers the most effective and most cost effective debt litigation service in the UK.
