Course Getting to the Money: Proactive Debt Recovery in 2017


This course is aimed at civil litigators, debt recovery practitioners and paralegals who wish to enhance their understanding of the debt recovery process from the initial taking of instructions through to enforcement.

The course is presented by Stephen Allinson who has a proven track record in establishing a successful, nationally recognised debt collection practice and who will also provide advice on marketing, developing and building a debt recovery practice.
