Debt recovery

Within: Debt recovery

‘In terms of approach, efficiency and general expertise’, Clarke Willmott LLP outmatches many of its competitors; according to some clients, ‘it is the benchmark against which all other debt recovery groups are compared’. The team handles salary overpayments and high-volume debt recovery and is also instructed in complex domestic and cross-border bespoke recoveries, including litigation. Working alongside the firm’s property litigation team, newly promoted partner Philip Roberts is acting for Celestia Management Company on defaulted rent recoveries from particularly difficult occupiers. Kathryn Quinton manages the team’s relationship with The Insolvency Service, which accounted for nearly 5,000 instructions in 2017, spanning income payment agreements, book debts and specialist recoveries. Technical director Stuart Hoysted oversees high-volume claims for a notable UK insurer, while Associate Karen Hellier and paralegal Kayleigh Linford are highly recommended. Additionally, the firm’s ‘online client-profiles allows clients to feel like they have complete control of their claims’. Other household-name clients include The Football Association (on behalf of Wembley National Stadium) and Viridor Waste Management.
