Debt Recovery


We know how frustrating it can be when you do not get paid for your hard work or the fine products you supply.  We have a specialist team who can help you recover debts owed, from £1 upwards.  We can also assist you and guide you if you are having financial difficulties. We can advise businesses and individuals with the following:-

  • Statutory Demands
  • The Winding Up of Companies/Petitioning for Bankruptcy/Insolvency
  • Letters Before Action demanding payment
  • Small Claims in the County Court of £10,000 or less
  • Legal proceedings for sums in excess of £10,000
  • Enforcement of Judgments
  • Defending/Settling Debt Claims that you face

Our Approach

We can advise you fully about pursuing your claim in a cost effective way.  Not only can we provide legal advice but we can use our agents to trace “missing debtors”, find out details about a debtor’s assets and to serve those who are good at evading the receipt of Court papers.  We can arrange for Judgement Debts of £600 or more to be transferred up to the High Court for more effective enforcement by High Court Enforcement Officers (previously and otherwise known as Sheriffs).


Our Debt Recovery Team is happy to provide fixed fees for most claims, and failing that will agree to do what it can for you within a budget (costs cap) fixed by you.

Our agents offer a “no trace no fee” scheme for finding missing debtors and competitive fees for tracing assets, serving documents and enforcing Judgements.

For businesses who want to hand over the responsibility of their Credit Control Department, then we can provide a very efficient service including the diary management and control of invoices/debts.

Gemma Mayer LLB

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Anita Toal LLB BA

"I think you are brilliant. You can use my comments above. You are efficient, friendly and quite clearly very good at what you do. Mainly you don’t leave people hanging around too long for." "So easy to talk to her and she understood what I wanted. She put me at ease and I cant thank her enough"

Daven Naghen LLB

"Daven provided an excellent service, from attending the first interview with me to the final court appearance. He filled me full of confidence that he would defend me to which he did and come out with an excellent outcome in view of my position that I had put myself in."

Faye Blair LLB

Faye was excellent, sensitive and acted very well to the time constraints we faced. Great service and dealt with compassion at such sad times made the process less painful very professional.

Jamie Dobbs ACILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.

Mike Pepper MA

This is the second time we have used Mike Pepper at Maples Solicitors in the sale of our house. We cannot praise Mike enough for the highly efficient and professional service that he has provided us with. He is by far the best solicitor we have ever worked with, and the service that he has provided us with has gone far and beyond anything we have ever experienced. We have found the whole process to be a very relaxing experience.

Claire Smith FCILEx

Claire Smith has been amazing in every way. I highly recommend her and I am so grateful for all her help. She’s professional on all levels, reliable, extremely organised and I will be recommending her to everyone. I’m very lucky to have had her representing me and I can’t thank her enough. She is an asset to Maples. Thanks so much Claire!

Anita Zaborniak

We found it a pleasure to deal with Anita Zaborniak, she was most helpful and informative and kept us up to date with the progress of the purchase of our new home. If we were to move again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Maples again.
