Professional
Negligence

Seeking advice from a professional is something we all rely on from time to time. For example, this could be legal advice, financial advice or even technical advice, which you are not able to gain on your own. Those people who give you advice have a professional duty of care to perform their job to a reasonable standard and care.

If you don’t receive a reasonable level of service or they fail to perform their role to a certain standard, this can result in Professional Negligence. At Ashwood Solicitors, we have a specialists team of solicitors who have extensive experience making claims on behalf of our clients. This can include cases of negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation.

Our Commercial Debt Recovery Process

There are four main steps to follow when collecting a commercial debt, at Ashwood Solicitors, we have detailed it below to enable you to further understand the process.

  1. Step one is to send a Letter Before Action (LBA) to the debtor, according to a study 75% of cases end in settlement. However, if the matter is not settled and payment is not received, we then move to step two.
  2. The next step means issuing court proceedings to the debtor.
  3. The third step is where we obtain a County Court Judgement (CCJ) on the debtor.
  4. The fourth stage is the start of enforcement action; this could be insolvency or bankruptcy action against the debtor.

We focus on providing a bespoke service and by working closely with you, we can tailor our service to suit your requirements. Our team of commercial litigation solicitors will negotiate the case at hand to achieve the most suitable outcome, whether that means going to court or not. At Ashwood Solicitors, we fully understand that you may be concerned about financial outcomes, which is why we aim to resolve the case eciently for your peace of mind.

Our Commercial Debt Recovery Process

For unsecured debts, you have a time limit of 6 years from the date the debt started and then from when it was last acknowledged by the debtor, to start a legal claim. If it is a secured debt, you have 12 years from the date of the debtor last acknowledgement of the debt. If this time has run out, you may be unable to recover the debt unless you can get permission from the court to pursue it.
