Our firm is experienced in knowledge of collections, credit management and the requirements of the legal system in the debt recovery process. We have the ability to undertake such processes on your behalf while maintaining open communication channels to keep you up to date on the relevant progress of matters. Our firm will work closely with you on their debtor portfolios to determine what Local Councils seek to recover and ensure the necessary steps are taken to recover such debts efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. We understand the position that Councils often operate in, and aim to act at all times in a manner that does not compromise their reputation. We are presently advising a Local Council on the largest rate collection and debt recovery matter in Australia.
