CCR Awards 2017

5 October 2017 – Flint Bishop win ‘Collections’ category at the CCR Awards 2017

We are pleased to announce that our Commercial Debt Recovery department has won this years’ CCR Credit Excellence Awards’ ‘Collections’ category.

This is the second time our Commercial Debt Recovery team has won this prestigious award, highlighting the outstanding work we continue to do on behalf of our clients.

The awards ceremony took place on Tuesday 03 October overlooking the Tower Bridge and the River Thames at the Guoman Tower hotel, attended by industry experts and other law firms also aiming to achieve this elite status.

Qamer Ghafoor comments;

“This is a fantastic achievement for our well-deserving team. Without their commitment, dedication and loyalty over the last 12 months, this would not have been possible.

Our legal experts have shown the necessary experience and expertise to handle high volume, low value recoveries as well as more complex high value disputes, acting for leading brands in the UK.

To win the Collections category at this years’ CCR Credit Excellence Awards again signifies the quality of the work we do. It gives me great pleasure to lead such a commercially astute department.”

In last 12 months, the Commercial Debt Recovery function at Flint Bishop has continued to excel and increase in size offering debt recovery partnerships for national and international companies, throughout multiple industries.

As part of continued works with blue-chip companies nationwide, Flint Bishop is reducing costs for commercial debt recovery processes, increasing productivity and improving the UK’s bad debt situation.
