Pursue disputed and litigious 'bad debts' with complete impunity - at no risk to you.
We will consider taking on any debt where your client may have raised a dispute with you. Including supplemental claims for damages and the like. If we lose, we will cover all of your costs (and disbursements) along with your opponents - at entirely no risk to you.
We can also analyse your accounts going back up to 5 years - completely free of charge - for bad and disputed debts that we may be able to accept.
So how exactly does it work?
Provided the debtor is not insolvent, bankrupt, in administration or been liquidated, we will consider most debts GBP 25,000 and above, where the principal debt, or dispute, is at least GBP 25,000, plus interest and any other claims, that you have probably written off in your annual accounts and given up pursuing due to the inherent risk and exposure to your own, and your opponents legal costs, which can often dwarf the original debt.
We will need to review and make an underwriting decision about the adverse exposure to costs as well as merit and recoverability. Once complete, if we and our solicitors agree to take on your claim, you will be charged a GBP 850.00 underwriting fee. This is only payable if we chose to proceed and the debt is disputed and/or considered litigious. If we accept it, and it is not disputed, or likely to be disputed or litigious (in our opinion), no underwriting fee is payable.
In return, we will take over your claim by standing in your shoes under a legal assignment whereby we take all the risk, fund all the costs of brining the claim, and any adverse costs if we lose**.
We will deduct 35% of whatever we recover (in your damages) as our risk-fee*.
This service is presently limited to litigation that is subject of the courts of the UK or Channel Islands only, but claimants and defendants may be based anywhere in the world.

The small print explained.
*Our unique schemes have been developed principally for the recovery of undisputed business-to-business invoice debts that relate exclusively to the supply of goods and/or services, however we will - for an additional 'risk fee' - consider disputed UK debts generally over £25,000 ("Debt"). Any registered business, or partnership, can sign up. Our solicitors seek to recover their cost's directly from the debtor pursuant to EU & UK legislation. We retain interest & statutory late payment charges to cover the cost and risk of providing our service and SLA in which we also 'guarantee' the payment of Debt (but not a disputed debt) below £/€ 5,000 where our solicitors, having agreed to take to court, fail to make a recovery - save as for where the debtor is, or appears to be, insolvent.
We will pay you 100% of invoices we recover subject to our SLA, which excludes insolvency litigation, disputed and aged debts which will be subject to a 25% fee for debts over 1 year old, and 35% for debts over 2 years or where they are disputed.
If we fail to make a recovery and are unable to proceed your matter to court, we will simply re-assign the invoice to you, and you will not have anything to pay.
**All risk in the legal costs, court costs, hearing fees, counsel and expert fees, disbursements and the like, along with those of the debtor should we lose, typically rest with Caresso Law whose Specialist Purpose Litigation Vehicle ("SPV") takes a legal assignment of Debt(s) and litigates them in its own name, and at its own risk, standing in your shoes as the claimant and taking said risk. We and instructed solicitors will waive all costs (along with any unrecovered costs) in the event that your claim is unsuccessful and you will not be required to pay back any litigation funding facility provided by Caresso Law provided to you unless you have deliberately misled us, the SPV, the court, the appointed solicitor or any expert or you otherwise fail to cooperate.
There must remain reasonable merit and prospect of success (at our absolute sole discretion) at all times for us to commence and/or continue litigation. Full Terms and Conditions provided when you use our service(s).
This means that you can take full comfort that in the event that we fail to make a recovery, or lose the case, provided you have complied you will not have anything to pay.
