The pricing of a debt recovery action is largely relative to the size of the claim and the complexity. The exact cost depends upon each individual case and we ensure that we tailor our services to your needs and offer you a personal touch rather than a production line service.
Generally, the estimated time from the commencement of court proceedings through to trial is between 12-18 months but the large majority of cases settle before trial and alternative dispute resolution (mediation/ round table meetings/arbitration) is encouraged by the courts to keep legal costs to a minimum. We will do our utmost to recover your debt in full and seek payment of your legal costs from your opponent as the successful party is usually entitled to payment of the majority of its legal costs.
Typically, the costs involved in a debt recovery action are as follows:
