A national team of debt recovery specialists, described as the industry’s “benchmark”, is once again named in the Top Tier of the prestigious Legal 500 guide.

The debt recovery team at law firm Clarke Willmott LLP was awarded Tier One status for debt recovery in the South West as well as Tier Two status for debt recovery in London for the third consecutive year by the guide, which ranks the UK’s top-performing lawyers and firms.

The Legal 500 says: “In terms of approach, efficiency and general expertise, Clarke Willmott LLP outmatches many of its competitors according to some clients; it is the benchmark against which all other debt recovery groups are compared.” Clarke Willmott’s debt recovery team, which has been operating for over 25 years and employs 38 specialist lawyers, caseworkers and support staff, is jointly led by debt recovery specialists Kat Quinton and Phil Roberts, both Partners in the firm.

Phil Roberts said: “The Legal 500 is based largely on client comment so to be ranked in the Top Tier and endorsed by such a respected publication for the third year in a row is a ringing endorsement of our services. Following a number of promotions earlier this year our team continues to go from strength to strength and this further reinforces our position at the forefront of the debt recovery industry.”

“We are proud of our hard-earned reputation for how quickly and efficiently we settle cases and the exceptional recovery rates we have achieved for clients.”
