Finding a lawyer can be a challenge, and personal recommendations are often a good way to decide. Before you make a decision, ask the following questions:
- Is there a firm specialising in debt recovery?
- Does the firm have a mediator or dispute resolution service that you can consider as an alternative option?
- How will you be charged – a per hour rate plus expenses or by the percentage of the sum recovered?
- If they do business on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, are there any hidden costs? Will you have to pay court costs?
