Money owed to your business serves to be profit just out of reach, this need not be the case. We can get that profit back into your hands speedily and efficiently at minimal cost to you, meaning the money owed will be your profit once again.
At George Papamihail Barristers and Solicitors, we recognise that you need to maintain relationships to ensure your business remains as profitable as possible. With that being said, it is important that you maintain cash flow. Along with business consultation service, which can resolve outstanding debts early, we can assist in the preparation of letters of demand and civil litigation to ensure payment is obtained.
Where the debt is below $10,000 you can apply to the Magistrates Court in a minor case claim to recover debts. We can assist with the preparation of an application, however, it is usually more cost effective if you represent yourself in these matters. Note, however, that corporations must act through a solicitor in court proceedings.
Where the debt is greater than $10,000 but less than $75,000 the matter will still be resolved by the Magistrates Court but in a general procedure claim. Where a debt is greater than $75,000 but less than $750,000 the matter will be resolved in the District Court of Western Australia. A debt greater than $750,000 must be resolved by the Supreme Court of Western Australia. In relation to any application contained in this paragraph we can assist in the preparation and represent you at any of the Courts.
There are many options to resolve debt issues without litigation and we are able to provide legal advice in relation to these options at an initial consultation. Further, we offer fixed fee services for debt recovery.
