Debt Recovery

Please note that our fees will vary depending on the value of your claim

The fees shown below are average prices and are intended to give you some indication of costs. The actual cost to you will depend on a number of factors that we will discuss with you in full if you decide to instruct us.

Small claims up to £10,000

In a small claims matter legal fees are largely not recoverable so you will be responsible for your own legal costs whatever the outcome. To make sure that legal costs are reasonable and manageable, we will conduct small claims debt recovery work on a fixed fee basis.

We offer an initial ½ hour consultation at a fixed fee of £60.00 to advise on your situation. You are under no obligation to instruct us any further after that appointment if you do not wish to. If you do want to proceed, we will explain the further fixed fee charges that will apply in your particular circumstances.

Our charges are as follows (all charges are plus VAT):

Recovering debts of more than £10,000
In these cases the legal fees incurred can be recovered from the losing party – the debtor. Therefore, we are able to offer a wider range of funding options and charging scales. What we are able to offer you will depend on the particular circumstances of your case.

Our charges are either:

a) hourly rates
Based on our hourly charging rates of between £180 per hour, depending on who is dealing with your case.

b) fixed fees of approximately:

If the case becomes particularly complex and is defended there is a possibility that fees could exceed the figures set out above but we will give detailed advice and guidance on costs if that is likely to be the case.

Additional costs you could expect to pay
There may be other costs on top of our fees called ‘disbursements’. These are fees and charges that we will need to pay on your behalf as part of the process, such as court fees, Barrister’s fees, and expert fees.

For your peace of mind, any additional fees will be discussed with you before they are incurred so that you have the opportunity to approve the expenditure. The cost of disbursements will vary on a case by case basis.

If your claim is successful the debtor is likely to be ordered by the court to pay the majority of the costs incurred by you. However, this may not be possible (for example if your debt is less than £10,000) in which case you would remain liable for our costs and charges incurred.
