Commercial lending

Our secured and commercial recoveries team deals solely with the recovery of debts owing by commercial borrowers.

In particular, we specialise in the recovery of debts secured by mortgages over real estate, including the appointment of fixed-charge receivers and enforcement of personal guarantees.

We offer our clients a bespoke commercial approach on each case and benefit from working together with colleagues across the firm in order to provide top level specialist advice. We have the benefit of being able to offer commission based recoveries and fixed fees and place an emphasis upon efficiency.

In addition to our debt recovery work we are able to undertake security reviews, to advise as to the enforceability of the defective security and to advise on landlord and tenant issues.

Our clients benefit from the efficiencies gained by us using class leading case management systems and from the provision of real-time management information.

Clients are always looking at new methods of debt recovery and we constantly innovate to meet client demand.
