Navigating the Debt Recovery Litigation Journey: Understand the Process

It’s important to note that the specific steps and procedures involved in debt recovery litigation can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the complexity of the case. Consulting with a qualified debt recovery lawyer can provide personalised guidance through this process.

1. Pre-Litigation Review

This involves our team evaluating the debt and determining if legal debt recovery is recommended. Factors such as the amount owed, the debtor’s situation and responses are considered. Before proceeding with legal action our specialised solicitors for debt recovery will ensure that an attempt to resolve the debt has been made, this is generally done in the form of a Solicitors Demand Letter.

2. Initiating Legal Action

If pre-litigation efforts fail, the creditor may initiate legal action by filing a lawsuit against the debtor in the appropriate court. Once the lawsuit is filed, the debtor must be formally served with a copy of the complaint and a summons, notifying them of the legal action against them. The debtor has a specific period to respond to the lawsuit, usually by filing an answer or other legal pleadings.

3. Response to Legal Action

If the debtor is to dispute the outstanding debt both parties exchange relevant information and evidence related to the debt before a judge or jury, who then decides the outcome of the case. Alternatively, if the debtor does not respond to the legal documents filed the commercial debt collection lawyers can proceed with Judgment.

4. Judgment

If the court rules in favour of the creditor, your debt recovery lawyer can enter a judgment against the debtor, specifying the amount owed and any other terms of repayment.

5. Enforcement

If the debtor fails to comply with the judgment voluntarily, our debt recovery lawyers can take further legal steps to enforce the judgment, such as wage / bank garnishee or examination summons.

Our Commercial Debt Collection Testimonials


Provides a more personal service and produces the best results!

I have used Macquarie Collections for my entire professional career as a Credit Manager, even advising my current employer to move to them when I commenced my role some 26 years ago. This is not to say we have not looked at alternative agencies that have contacted us over the years. However, we have found that Macquarie Collections provides a more personal service and produces the best results. And importantly, it is also very cost effective. The team there are most obliging and courteous and keep us well informed on the progress of each account. We have found their knowledge and ongoing advice to be invaluable. We also find, the relationship they have with Malcolm Murray Solicitors who are included in the umbrella of services provided gives the best results possible. We are more than pleased to recommend Macquarie Collections to any business that has problems with slow paying accounts.
