Debt Collection

Pricing Information - Debt Collection  

The costs in relation to collection of a debt cover our fees and third party costs that we need to pay on your behalf.  

Before commencing any debt collection work for you, we will explain: 

  • what our hourly rates are and what our fee estimate is
  • what work will be done within our fee estimate
  • how our fees will be calculated and how we have estimated our likely fees 
  • any other costs that you may incur

Our Fees – Hourly Rates and Fixed Fees 

Our hourly rates for debt collection work range between £250 and £500. Please note that our fees are subject to VAT. 

The circumstances of your case affect the work and therefore the time needed. For example, relevant factors include:

  • the complexity of factual and/or legal issues and the amount of evidence to consider
  • the conduct and location of the debtor 
  • the size of the debt
  • the level of any required disclosure and expert evidence (if any)
  • any requirement for enforcement action following judgment 

It is therefore extremely difficult to predict the total cost at the outset. 

Fixed Fees - Wherever possible we will offer fixed fees for work required, particularly in the initial stages of a dispute.   


Disbursements are costs payable to third parties in relation to your matter that will be added to your bill. Examples of potential disbursements are:


  • Court fees for which there is a scale, ranging from £35 for the lowest value claim to £10,000 for claims for £200,000 or more. 
  • Counsel’s (barrister’s) fees;
  • Expert’s fees;
  • Mediation costs - Mediator’s fees and potentially venue hire costs;


Legal Expense Insurance
