Flint Bishop is shortlisted for their third national debt recovery award this year

By CreditMan Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Flint Bishop is the largest independent, top 200, law firm in the region, with two offices across Derbyshire. In the last few years alone they have secured major contracts across a multitude of household named clients – such as Autoglass, Office Depot, Costcutter,

Marston's, Virgin Media and Marley Eternit, to name a few. Many of the new national client wins, are embargoed due to their size and will be released in the coming months.

The firm already hold two of the three nationally recognised debt recovery awards and are now delighted to be nominated for the final major national award for its contribution to Debt Recovery at this year’s Credit Today awards.

The awards are organised by global publishing giant, Athene Publishing, which is the home for Credit Today, the UK’s leading credit industry magazine.

In the last twelve months Flint Bishop have been recognised at the CCR awards where they won the ‘Collections’ category and were highly commended for its contribution in ‘Legal and Enforcement.’

The second major award win was the ‘Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year’ at the CICM British Credit Management Awards and Flint Bishop were again highly commended, this time in the ‘Legal Team of the Year’ category.

The Credit Today awards ceremony takes place in London on 12th May 2016, where Flint Bishop are finalists for ‘Best Legal Team’ and hope to come away with the debt recovery ‘treble’ this year.

Qamer Ghafoor, Managing Partner of Commercial Services and Head of Litigation comments “The Debt Recovery team has grown significantly over the course of the last two years, with the success of many major new contract wins. Although we operate from a Derby base, our clients are very much leading national brands across a number of industries. We are fortunate enough to be seeing expansion across the whole firm, but particularly amongst the Debt Recovery department. Flint Bishop have proven to be both an effective and cost-effective alternative to traditional ‘debt recovery agencies’. I’m looking forward to the awards ceremony, where I hope we will once again be recognised for our ability to deliver a first class debt recovery solution and add value to our clients.”
