Litigation & Recoveries

Carla joined the firm in March 1998 and, shortly after joining, moved into what is now known as the Litigation & Recoveries department. Carla has remained with the department ever since, progressing through various roles to become a Chartered Legal Executive (FCILEx) and Director. She has many years of experience in collecting secured and unsecured commercial and personal finance debts across the finance and credit sectors.

Specialising in servicing volume debt referrals, she has built frameworks for the departments’ bespoke case management system, resulting in the seamless integration with client systems for highly effective management of debt portfolios. Carla works closely with clients to establish reporting requirements, using highly effective MI and data analysis to develop and review strategies and maximise recoveries.

Carla retains work in the debt purchase space and has successfully brought several global substitution applications for litigated accounts purchased.  She was also instrumental in securing the set aside of a large volume of county court judgments for a non-DP client in an unprecedented application.
