In brief: Firm eases path to debt recovery

A specialist debt recovery firm is marketing itself to potential clients as having a proven track record in enhancing companies' relationship with debtors. Uxbridge-based 11-partner practice Turberville Woodbridge describes the service as being particularly suitable for firms that have an on-going contractual or service agreement with the debtor. The firm won a three-year contract, employing seven people, to recover debts for Rank Xerox from November 1995. Turberville is assessed by Xerox not only on target collection levels but the way it handles complaints.
