Debt Recovery

Our Debt Recovery team at Worthingtons have extensive experience in recovering debts for clients, with a focus on the recovery of commercial debts. We can assist you throughout the process, from drafting and reviewing your terms and conditions, seeking early resolution of the debt, through to obtaining a court order and enforcement action.

We can assist you with the following:

    • Small Claims Court: up to £3,000

    • High Court: £30,000+
    • European Small Claims Procedure

  • Insolvency: bankruptcy/winding up petition
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution: We understand that for many businesses it is important to try and preserve trading relationships if possible and ADR or Mediation is often helpful
  • Advise on your terms & conditions and the application of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts [Interest] Act 1998

We provide an individualised approach to each and every case, as we understand that each case has its own unique set of circumstances.

We aim to provide an efficient and cost-effective service to our clients, providing advice tailored to their business needs.

We currently act for local businesses, shopping centres, consumer credit providers, insurers, financial institutions and public-sector bodies, based in both Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, the UK and further afield.

Worthingtons can also provide you with expert advice in respect of your terms and conditions, to ensure you are able to not only issue proceedings in Northern Ireland, but also ensure you can claim interest on late payments or retain your goods in the event payment is not received.
