Meet Alan Davies, Hillyer McKeown Paralegal, Commercial Recoveries
Clients often sum up what I do in three words: efficient, affordable and invaluable!
While we can talk endlessly about our commercial recoveries service, ultimately it is most rewarding for everyone involved when a business is paid the money they are owed. Often clients have written off this money because it is a couple of years old, or because they have a long-standing relationship they don’t want to compromise. Part of my skill involved being an expert negotiator!
Being in the Commercial Recoveries department, I enjoy being in a team that strives for excellent levels of service for all clients, and really knows its stuff.
Over 10 years’ experience in commercial recoveries
Having worked in the legal industry for over 10 years I have gained experience acting for industry leading companies within the insurance, haulage, transport and many more sectors.
I believe the experience I have developed enables me to provide a thorough and pro-active service. I also pride myself on maintaining clear and open lines of communication so clients are kept fully aware of where they are up to.
I also enjoy establishing and maintaining solid relationships. Personally, acting on behalf of clients and providing positive results is a highlight for me.
Proven track record in recovering money for businesses
While being at Hillyer McKeown, I have been helping to develop a fully tailored service which has a 98% track record of recovering outstanding debts. What does this mean for you, the business owner or manager? It allows you to continue running your business and re-invest the money collected back into the business. As a recent example, it is satisfying to hear that my efforts could result in an owner being able to hire a new employee.
Improving company cash flow
I fully understand how limited cash flow can affect a business. I encourage people to talk to me as early as possible (including helping to reduce future cash flow issues). Also, I can take you through the process if you are considering taking legal action against someone who has not paid a business the money it is rightly owed (which I understand can be a daunting thought).
What clients say
“I have been extremely impressed with how quickly Hillyer McKeown recovered a large outstanding debt we had from a client.
After a short 30 minute phone call and one email, Alan was on the case. With a day or so a letter had gone to our client.
10 days later we had the full amount recovered in our bank account!
I had previously pressed this client for 4 months and yet Alan was able to recover the full amount in just over a week and thanks to the Late Payment Act, it cost me ZERO. I’m extremely impressed with the results, professionalism and communication of HM and would have no issues recommending them.” Glenn, Get Velocity Ltd
“The non payment of a debt is not a place any person or company wants to be. Finding a company to collect debt for most individuals is new. My first experience left me thinking: was it worth the time and expense?
Then I found Hillyer McKeown.
The team explained the process, outlined a cost-effective way forward and then executed the task in a professional manner. Alan kept me up to date and issues along the way were resolved with little fuss, leading to a successful conclusion.” Mr Burke
“I would like to thank you for the successful completion of the matter of debt collection which you agreed to undertake for me.
I was impressed by your competence, your efficiency and the manner in which you conducted the procedure. The debtor was an “ awkward customer” but your dogged persistence won the day! I very much appreciated the speed of communication between us in that you were always able to answer any queries I had within 24 hours – sometimes within the same hour!” Landlord Client
“We appointed Hillyer McKeown to help us with a commercial recoveries matter. Mike and his team have proved to be extremely professional and approachable, taking time to explain the process at every step, and successfully deal with a stressful situation. We will definitely continue to use Hillyer McKeown and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.” Davies Partnership, Leading Design Consultants for Building Services
