Forbes Appoints Janet Shackell to Head Forbes Collect

Forbes Collect News

12 December, 2017

Janet Shackell has been appointed Head of Forbes' Collect, the innovative debt collection service which uses cutting edge technology to maximise clients' chances of recovering their money.

Janet, who is based at Forbes Solicitors' office at Oak House, Walton Summit, Central Lancashire, has over 25 years' experience in Civil Litigation and Debt Recovery and is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

Her specialisms include dealing with complicated debtors who have refused to make payment previously, dealing with disputed invoices chasing outstanding commercial invoices from initial letter before claim through to County Court Proceedings, enforcement and Insolvency.

The Forbes Collect team is part of the Dispute Resolution Department. It utilises cloud-based technology to deliver a platform for efficient, effective recovery.

It makes it easy for debtors to pay with an online platform which allows payments to be recovered outside normal business hours, something that it has found helps to increase the chances of being paid in full.

Its bespoke systems and procedures ensure that debtors are kept under pressure to pay in full throughout the process, maximising the chances of recovering the money that is owed to clients.

Janet has vast experience and can recommend the most appropriate enforcement action for clients to ensure the best outcome for them.

She acts for a wide variety of commercial clients from SMEs to larger organisations and has acted for Local Authorities in high value and complex cases utilising the many enforcement avenues through the County Court and Insolvency process.

She said: "I am delighted to be heading up the Forbes Collect team, which strives to recover client's money proactively and effectively and is dedicated to maximising recoveries."
