HOW IT WORKS
Register online (free of charge) so we know who you are and where to send your money.
Log in at any time to issue a Legal Demand.
Pay $35* for an email Legal Demand or $40* for a post and email Legal Demand.
For larger debts, you can authorise us to negotiate a payment plan with your debtor (with the minimum instalment amount to be decided by you).
*All prices are quoted exclusive of GST.
We issue the Legal Demand on lawyer’s letterhead to your debtor anywhere in Australia instantly and send you a copy.
Click here to see a sample Legal Demand.
If you authorise us to, we will invite your debtor to offer to pay the debt by instalments at no additional cost to you.
We electronically remit to you debtor payments within 7 days of receipt.
At any time from your client portal you can see the repayments and the outstanding amount of the debt.
If we don’t receive payment (and mostly we do), we’ll assess the available options (free of charge) and recommend the most cost-effective course of action.
We will provide a no-obligation quote for the work involved and an estimate of what costs you can recover from the debtor.
You then decide if you want to take the matter further.
WHY CHOOSE US
Why you should engage a lawyer instead of a debt collection agency?
It's more effectiveWhen debt collection agencies demand payment, professional debtors know that they can't take legal action to enforce your claim. Only a lawyer can offer this service.
It's cheaperWe don't charge hefty commissions or hidden extras on top of our fixed fee. If your debt collection agency can’t collect your debt, they'll tell you so see a lawyer or hire one on your behalf. You'll probably end up paying both!
One stop shopUnlike a debt collection agency, we're licensed to provide legal advice – so if something crops up, we can help.
Upfront Fixed FeesWe will tell you exactly what it will cost and how much you can expect to recover from the debtor, arming you with the information to decide whether a debt is worth pursuing.
ConvenientInstruct us on new matters and keep track of the progress of existing matters with our easy-to-use website.

Thanks guys it was really great meeting with you to discuss the non paying client, we felt very confident in your GPC and services. I really think they knew they had no defence and it would have been embarrassing for them to pursue knowing I had great lawyers behind us. Thanks again
