What is a debt collection agency?

A debt collection agency is a company that pursues unpaid invoices or outstanding debts on behalf of the creditor. Whilst not being a debt collection agency, Forbes Collect is a unique, solicitor-led service that will aid you in the collection of your unpaid invoices.

Our Forbes Collect team are experts in debt collection and as we are solicitors this brings the following added benefits:

  1. We are experts in what we do and specialists in debt recovery
  2. We provide straightforward, practical legal advice that is adapted to the needs of your business
  3. We can progress your claim by issuing court proceedings should the circumstances require it, something that debt recovery agents cannot do
  4. If the claim is defended, we have a team of solicitors who can properly advise on next steps and ensure that the best course of action is taken whilst ensuring costs are kept to a minimum
  5. We pride ourselves in delivering the highest standard of client care and service, ensuring that our client's come first and that their requirements are central to everything we do:
    • Our client portal is available 24/7 and helps us deliver this enhanced service
    • Efficient and streamlined collections makes debt recovery as easy and cost-effective as possible for our clients
  6. We are fully regulated by the Solicitor's Regulation Authority (SRA) and insured, giving you piece of mind. We also have numerous accreditations including ISO 9001.
