In the event of any additional work over and above the routine work required for an undisputed debt then our charges will vary according to the fee earner from £50.00 to £225 per hour plus VAT.
If a defence is filed then the file becomes a litigation file and will be transferred from our Debt Collection system and you will be provided with a revised cost estimate at that time.
VAT will be added to these charges at the applicable rate.
It is not always possible to clearly identify a timescale as all matters are unique. Typically though a matter can take 6-7 weeks following issue, entry of judgement and instruction to the Enforcement Officer.

|Phillip Clarke - Solicitor and Head of Department||£250 per hour|

|Adeeba Bashir - Paralegal||£135 per hour|
Any work that is outside the scope of the fixed debt recovery charges but is not contentious is charged at £50 per hour
