Head of Litigation at Beeston Shenton, Iain Bould, has recently been successful in recovering over ¼ of a  million pounds. For a fledgling company, together with Interest, Administration Fees admin Costs. This resulted in not only a cost-neutral expense for the clients, but it also provided an additional income string for the client. 


A Successful Claim


This was a make-or-break position for the client. While payment was properly invoiced and accepted by the debtor, funds weren’t being released. The client expressed concern that without payment, it would be an end to their business. However, if they pushed hard for funds to be released, this would ruin future potential business. 

While a loss of a relationship is often a concern of our client, this is rarely the case. In this instance, not only has payment in full been secured, but the parties are also in talks about going further with future business. They’ve also discussed how future payments can be met in a more positive way. This outcome is a win-win for both parties.
