Ola Leslie’s Debt Recovery Solicitors provide a low cost service that meets the needs of Businesses when payment problems arise.

We understand that cash flow is the lifeblood of any Business and that Credit control is crucial.

Our specialist system means that we can deliver a simple, effective and rapid Debt recovery service.

Our system deals with Invoice Debts and means that we can deal with recovering your Debts on a low cost fixed fee stage-by-stage basis.

Our Debt Recovery Team guarantee to send a letter before action on the same day of instruction (subject to payment for this service) unless your instructions are received after 3pm.

The fixed fee operates on undisputed Invoice Debts only and this service does not include advice on your prospects of recovery.

We recommend obtaining a credit/status check in all cases to ascertain whether it is worth pursuing your Debtor.

We can also help you with the following on an ad-hoc basis:


This service enables us to attempt to trace Debtors who have absconded – employment checks can also be made.

This service is provided on a “no trace, no fee” basis by the Company that we use.

An administration fee for us to carry this out on your behalf will be payable, in the sum of £30.00 plus VAT.

Send a Letter Before Action

At only £50.00 plus VAT, a Letter before Action demands payment from the Debtor within a given period (e.g. 7 days) failing which Court action will be commenced.

Statistics show that in 70% of cases where a Letter Before Action is issued, Court proceedings have been avoided.

On instructing us to send the Letter before Action, please contact us to arrange a card payment (alternatively a cheque can be sent) and arrange to post/e-mail/fax a copy of the unpaid invoice to us.

Once payment is made, we will:

  1. Acknowledge your instructions by email to confirm that the Letter before Action has been sent together with details of the amount demanded (interest and/or compensation)
  2. Contact you by email to check whether payment has been received. If it has, that is great we will not charge you a penny more. If not, we will discuss the next steps with you

Issue Legal Proceedings

If payment is not made in full after the letter before action is issued, on your instruction we can issue a claim at the County Court or the High Court (depending on the size of the debt) for a fixed fee.

Our charges vary depending on the size of the debt involved; please contact us for a quotation.
