Debt recovery

Debt recovery is an onerous yet vital aspect of business. Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation practice has experience in recovering funds for lenders, and we advise in relation to recovery of funds advanced under loans that are regulated by the Consumer Credit Code, as well as unregulated loans.

Our strategy on each individual recovery is always cognisant of the value of any security and enforcement costs. Regularly reporting to our lender clients is a key service that we provide in this sector.

Our strong understanding of insolvency has assisted a large number of secured and unsecured lenders in the recovery process. We also advise lenders on mortgagee sales.
