If your business is struggling to recover its commercial debts, we’ll help you get back what’s owed to you

Unfortunately, bad debts impact businesses of all sizes. Not having the money that’s owed to you in your bank account means that there is less available for you to invest in the business and can delay expansion plans or worse, result in your business reaching breaking point.

Instructing a commercial solicitor to help with debt collection and debt recovery can really help prevent bad debtors becoming a problem for your business. Here at Harding Evans in South Wales, our specialist debt recovery team includes qualified solicitors and we are proud to be one of the few law firms in the UK to have its own in-house qualified bailiff.

As an experienced commercial law firm, we understand your legal rights and all routes that are available to you. We take a sensitive but determined approach with debtors, understanding that sometimes they can simply be guilty of burying their head in the sand and just need to be handled
correctly. Our debt recovery strategy aims to get the best outcome for everyone.

Get in touch with our expert team today.

Most businesses face problems at some stage, either because of trading difficulties or because of issues with their customers or suppliers. We can offer advice on all aspects of business recovery, including rescue, restructuring or formal insolvency of the business itself. We can also provide advice on what to do if your customers or suppliers are in financial difficulties or are becoming insolvent.

Recognising financial problems early on gives businesses the best prospect of survival so that action
can be taken before creditors take matters into their own hands. We can help with:

  • Business rescue, turnaround and company restructuring
  • Claims by Liquidators and Administrators
  • Representing Insolvency Practitioners and LPA Receivers
  • Asset recovery
  • Bad debt recovery
  • Defending wrongful trading and other personal claims against directors (including disqualification proceedings).

We have a level of commercial expertise offered by very few law firms and deliver our services in the most cost-effective way. Our aim is that your debtors pay our fees, not you.

We pride ourselves on our proactive approach and highly effective debt collection methods. However you choose to instruct us, we aim to have sent out the initial Letter of Claim the same day and unlike some debt collection agencies, we are an experienced Commercial Law Firm that understands all your legal rights and all routes available.

Our solicitors take the time to understand your business and its customers as we know that one size
does not fit all. This allows us to tailor a plan for each individual case, significantly improving your
chances of getting paid.

We work across a range of sectors and with a number of professionals, including:

  • Construction Companies
  • Builders Merchants
  • Leisure & Hotels
  • Retail Sector
  • Nurseries
  • Sports Clubs

We take the time to understand your business and its customers.  One size does not fit all for business, nor should it for Debt Collection and Debt Recovery.  Each business is different and so are it’s customers.  Understanding your customer means we can tailor a case plan for each individual case, improving your chances of getting paid.
