Legal Proceedings

 

 

In some cases, as part of the debt collection process LPL will recommend Court legal proceedings. LPL in association with Harris da Silva Solicitors, offer a comprehensive legal service in England and Wales. We also have legal representation worldwide.

In England and Wales this includes the issuing of legal proceedings through to obtaining judgement, execution, third party debt orders, charging orders, winding up or bankruptcy proceedings as well as other enforcement procedures.

Our services include dealing with all the documentation on your behalf and liaising with Harris da Silva throughout to ensure that the Court proceedings are conducted as expeditiously as possible.

When a successful collection is achieved, which often includes interest and statutory costs, the majority of overall costs of the proceedings will generally be recovered from the customer.

LPL does as much as possible to ensure that the legal system is utilised quickly, successfully and cost effectively.

If you have any questions on the above or if you require details on commencing legal proceedings outside England and Wales, please contact us on:
