I acted for a client that was owed £2000 by a former employee. I sent a 30-day Pre-action protocol letter. The debtor was also contacted direct by my client and they eventually agreed to payment by installments to discharge the debt at £100 per fortnight.

Sometimes the combination of a solicitors letter and contact direct from the client can result in a proposal. It’s important to be reasonable and realistic about proposals. Installments are not ideal, but something is better than nothing.
