Our special package in this regard offers the following advantages:

  • Settlement: Our debt recovery team first tries to resolve the issue by amicable settlement. If that doesn’t work, we go to the next step of sending legal notice to the party.
  • Litigation: If the first step doesn’t give the required result, our legal team takes over. Our experienced civil and criminal lawyers can handle the case effectively. Team members have been chosen for their pro-active approach to debt recovery matters and thorough use of all legal methods available to them. Cases are actioned immediately and clients updated throughout the legal process. Our clients receive a full in-depth legal service covering all methods of enforcement, arbitration and dispute resolution.
