If our debt recovery team issues a County Court claim on your behalf and the debtor responds by sending either a defence or a part admission and you wish to reject the offer, the claim will then be treated as a defended claim.

Defended claims fall outside of our no recovery no fee service and the matter will be passed to a lawyer in our team for a fixed price review. They will advise you on the contents of the defence or part admission and will discuss the next steps.

If and when a defence is filed against you, you need the very best solicitors and advisors on your team to help you make an informed and educated decision that is right for your business. We have the experience and expertise to assist you every step of the way.
