Pre-action protocol for debt claims

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. 

Services & Fees

30-day Pre-action protocol letter - £25 + VAT

File Open – 4 months

Top Tip

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.
