Debt recovery

Commercial debt recovery

At Maitland Walker we understand the importance of commercial debt recovery for businesses. Recovering unpaid invoices from parties obligated to make payment is a crucial aspect of maintaining a healthy cash flow.

Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of the debt recovery process to not only recover the outstanding amount but also claim interest and debt recovery costs for late payments, maximizing the amount recovered. We work with business of all sizes to recover debts swiftly and cost effectively, often without recourse to formal legal proceedings.

Debt recovery can be a complex and time-consuming undertaking, often presenting challenges for businesses.

Whether it's dealing with financially struggling debtors or resolving disputes over owed amounts, our team is here to provide the necessary legal expertise and guidance. With a deep understanding of the relevant legal frameworks and procedures, we ensure that businesses adhere to the applicable regulations and enhance their prospects of successful debt recovery.

How our debt recovery team can help you

Our skilled and experienced team excel at engaging with debtors and their legal representatives, striving to secure favourable settlements. By partnering with Maitland Walker, businesses can place their trust in our unwavering commitment to delivering efficient and effective outcomes in debt recovery cases. We are dedicated to assisting businesses in navigating the complexities of debt recovery, safeguarding their financial interests, and optimising the chances of successful recovery.

We regularly advise on:

  • Pre-action attempts to recover the debt including formal letters before action;

  • Issuing legal proceedings and navigating through them including responding to defences, engaging with mediation etc;

  • Preparing payment agreements and monitoring instalments, chasing defaults, etc; and

  • Insolvency action including bankruptcy and winding up.

  • In my experience, Maitland Walker’s key strength lies in representing clients in commercial litigation who may not be familiar with the litigation process and ensuring that it is demystified such that the client can pursue the matter efficiently and effectively.
  • I have worked with Julian Maitland-Walker and Sheree-Ann Virgin. Both appear to me to be excellent practitioners who understand the needs of their client and ensure that the litigation is conducted in a way that meets those needs. They are both extremely pleasant to deal with. They are intelligent and thoughtful individuals with good commercial instincts.
