        Creditor Services

        Our innovative free service offers a complete solution, allowing clients to outsource the administration of their insolvent debt to us.

        Acting for banks, ABLs, utility suppliers, local authorities, financial institutions, debt purchasers, credit card companies and vehicle finance organisations, we take away the administrative burden of managing clients' insolvent debt portfolios.

        With access to qualified solicitors, the overriding aim of our service is to maximise client recovery whilst saving costs. We will handle everything from lodging claims and ensuring proofs of debt are submitted, logging, analysing and forwarding dividend cheques through to exploring bankruptcy claims where appropriate.  We will provide you with up-to-date, real-time management information, an insolvency helpdesk and real-time valuation of your insolvent debt portfolio.

        DWF’s Creditor Services demonstrates our commitment to supporting our clients through innovation and added value. Drawing expertise from across the firm, through our wider business restructuring, financial services and commercial services expertise, our clients trust us to deliver practical, workable solutions for them to help maximise their recovery from insolvency debt.  

        Headed up by Katharine Lawrenson, our experts work alongside clients providing free, impartial advice and proactive support. We work hard to add value through becoming an integral part of your team, offering in-house training on insolvency law as well as practical advice and support.
