We acted for a company looking to recover £52,000 from a debtor who had long refused to pay.

The client was nevertheless successful and our costs of £8,000 plus vat and expenses were recovered in 2 years. Our costs were substantially cheaper than would have been the case had the matter had to be conducted through the courts and the client probably saved a year in time by using the contractual dispute resolution mechanism
