CCR Awards 2013: Flint Bishop wins Legal Recovery Firm of the Year

Flint Bishop has been named ‘Legal Recovery Firm of The Year’ at this year’s CCR Awards.

The CCR Awards’ judging committee praised Flint Bishop for its approach to debt recovery, in particular citing innovation and excellent financial results, along with high satisfaction levels of their clients.

Now in its seventh year and hosted by leading credit control magazine Credit Today, the CCR Awards recognise the industry’s outstanding efforts and commitment to best practice in debt collection.

The judging panel consisted of some of the leading names the UK’s largest financial firms, along with the CEO of the Credit Services Association.

Flint Bishop’s winning submission focused on its ‘Intelligent Debt Collection’ offering: a new and innovative approach to debt collection that has brought in over £35m for two of its clients.

Commenting on the award, Qamer Ghafoor said:

“Being named Legal Recovery Firm of the Year is not just significant recognition, but a great source of pride for us. One of the long-term ways we are growing the firm is through commercial litigation and this is a testament to the hard work of everyone within the team. We have created an approach to credit management and debt collection that goes way beyond the standard approach taken by most of the industry and focusses on commercial, pragmatic advice on prevention and improvement in addition to traditional recovery work. We are pleased that our methods have been recognised by the credit control industry.”

This caps off a great year for Flint Bishop’s litigation team, who increased their turnover by 45%, were shortlisted for The Legal 500 ‘Regional Law Firm for Dispute Resolution’ Award and increased their commercial litigation ranking in the Legal 500, the leading independent legal rankings guide, to Tier 1. The team is now firmly established as one of the best in the Midlands, with four lawyers individually recommended by the Legal 500 and two partners (Qamer Ghafoor and Andrew Cochrane) included on the prestigious Elite Lawyers List.

The CCR Debt Collection Awards is the industry’s leading event, attracting submissions from some of the UK’s largest companies and professional services firms and an audience of over 500 for the ceremony.
