Enforcement in 2016: Ensuring you're in shape

As always, the enforcement of a judgment is the crucial part of commercial litigation and debt recovery actions. But there are significant challenges in 2016 for this whole area. There's still a perception that the process isn't fit for purpose for creditors. Is that right?

Stephen Allinson is an acknowledged expert in this area of law and his book Enforcement of a Judgment has just been published by Sweet & Maxwell. His 25-minute update looks at key themes in this field, focusing on recent changes and other new proposals that are currently being considered.

Topics include:

  • New pre-action protocol for debt recovery
  • Impact of reforms to bailiff and High Court enforcement procedures
  • Use of bankruptcy as an enforcement tool
  • Mediation requirements for debt recovery and enforcement
  • Costs developments
  • New process for charging orders and attachments of earnings
  • Utilising order for sale proceedings
