Getting invoices paid may seem fairly obvious so making sure any overdue invoices are paid should be high on the list of priorities for any business.  It is vital that getting money owed to you is undertaken quickly and efficiently and here at Keelys we are pleased to offer to you our specialist debt collection services. 

Keelys will work with you efficiently and professionally with your debt collection matters.

Keelys is unique in Staffordshire. There are less than ten law firms in England and Wales like us. Why is that?

You need someone who can get on with the whole process from start to finish, from the very first letter to the very last enforcement step. Patrick Farrington who is a solicitor and partner and leads our debt collection department is also an authorised High Court Enforcement Officer. He has over thirty years’ experience in this area of law. Prior to his authorisation by the Ministry of Justice in 2004 as a HCEO, he was a Deputy Under Sheriff of Staffordshire, carrying out a similar role until a change in legislation brought about by The Courts Act 2003 and The High Court Enforcement Officers Regulations 2004.

Keelys can therefore offer the combined services of a senior and experienced lawyer and HCEO, yet our fees are very competitive.

What debt collection services do we provide?

If the debt is undisputed, we can offer fixed fees depending on the nature and size of the claim.  Click here to read more about debt recovery and here to see our latest charges for pursuing debts of up to £100,000.

If the debt is disputed, we will still look to work with you and will offer fixed fees where appropriate, although a different fee structure will apply.

Our debt recovery service includes:

  • Clear and simple advice on the merits of pursuing your claim along with the likelihood of recovery from the debtor.  We will consider if there are any informal methods of recovering the debt.
  • Sending a letter before action to seek to obtain the debt;
  • If payment is not made, issuing proceedings and enforcing any judgment we obtain on your behalf. 

We can enforce judgments too

Once we have obtained a judgment in your favour, we also offer a fixed fee for our enforcement services which are carried out by this firm as Patrick Farrington.  Click here to read about our enforcement services.

For debt recovery matters, Patrick is assisted by Ellysse Bassan.  For more information, please contact Patrick Farrington on 01543 420000 or
