Credit Today Awards 2016

18 May 2016: Flint Bishop is revelling in success after winning all of the three nationally recognised debt recovery awards this year.

Last week, Flint Bishop was crowned ‘Best Legal Team’ by the Credit Today awards at a glamorous event held at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

Attendees included HM Revenue and Customs, Vodafone, Marston Holdings, EON, TDX Group, AXA, EDF Energy, KPMG and EE, to name a few.

There are three major awards for legal recoveries that Flint Bishop has won year on year. They are the highest recognition for excellence in credit management and debt collection and are highly competitive. These awards are CICM (Chartered Institute of Credit Management), CCR Magazine and the Credit Today awards. Not only is the firm now current holder of all three award titles, it also received high commendation for two further categories.

This accolade is a great achievement for Flint Bishop, who currently acts for multiple national household named clients. Many of the new client wins are strictly embargoed and due for release in the coming months.

Qamer Ghafoor has been recognised as one of the UK’s top litigation Solicitors in the leading directory, Legal 500. He is commonly recognised as an “A-Star litigator” and has grown the department substantially in the last few years.

Qamer comments;

“I am pleased that the department has received the recognition it deserves across these three awards. Over the last few years, we have been going from strength to strength and our household name client wins are a testament to the quality and standard of the legal services that we are able to deliver. The firm always goes the extra mile for our clients.

We are often asked what sets us apart from other service providers and the answer is that we always put the client at the heart of what we do. As part of our service, we always offer a cost effective solution with a dedicated client team and tailor the delivery of our service to what works best for our clients.

I am delighted that as proof of our dedication to the credit industry, we have been recognised across all three national awards and look forward to what the next year has in store for us.”

29 March 2016: Flint Bishop is delighted to be shortlisted for our third national debt recovery award this year. This time under the ‘Best Legal Team’ category at the Credit Today Awards 2016.

In the last few years alone, Flint Bishop has secured major contracts across a multitude of household named clients. Many of the new national client wins, are embargoed due to their size and will be released in the coming months.

We 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, we have been recognised at the CCR awards where they won the ‘Collections’ category and were highly commended for its contribution to ‘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 was 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 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 has 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.”
