A full and comprehensive guide to the law, practice and procedure involved in the recovery of money. Extensively updated, this edition covers every aspect of debt collection, from correctly briefing clients on the basis of recovery right through to enforcement methods.

The text explains fully the effect on county court work and the transfer between county court and High Court following changes introduced by the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990. The international coverage has also been expanded to include the Contracts (Applicable Law) Act 1990 and the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act. Developments on Mareva injunctions, insolvency and receivership are also considered.

Included are many precedents and specimen letters providing the practitioner with invaluable practical advice on time-saving methods and procedures. This is the book to show the practitioner the realities of debt collection.
