What our clients say

Leonie Brown

Philip and Robyn are very focused and good at demystifying things. They mediated between me and a client who hadn’t paid and they sorted it out, keeping me in the loop at every stage

I’ve known Philip for seven years and we’ve used the services a lot. In particular, it’s useful to have someone mediate between us and our customers when there is a debt outstanding and Philip does that fantastically well.

Olivia Grimwood

I’ve worked with Philip Elliott Associates since 2012. They handle legal issues and debt collection for our business and give me advice and leads on who to contact for other support. As soon as there’s a problem, say, if one of our customers moves to a new supplier and doesn’t pay their outstanding bill with us, I pick up the phone to Philip and he sorts it out.

Jonathan Wheeler, independent school bursar

I have worked with Philip Elliott Associates for about two years, using their debt recovery services as a bursar in the independent school sector.

What I like about them is they are interested in the longer term relationship, not the quick win.

Robyn, the firm’s paralegal, is outstanding: she is effective, polite and efficient with a good sense of humour and she takes an appropriately robust approach to debtors.

For example, there was a case in which a family owed us several thousand pounds and we had been promised it for some time. The debt had built up over a period and the child left the school without the balance being paid.

Robyn and I discussed the case at length. She did some due diligence and her tenacity enabled us ultimately, after many hurdles, to recover all the sums due to the school, including our costs.

She’s not a ‘typical debt collector’ going headlong into a case and sometimes hitting the wrong notes. She will come back to me and seek to persuade me when there is no purpose in us continuing if the position legally is one of x, y  or z.

But it’s her personality and her approach that singles her out, to my mind. There are plenty who have her qualifications but they do not have her approach or her temperament and tenacity.

She will also challenge me. It’s very easy to get very close to a situation such that you don’t see the wood for the trees but I’ve been impressed by the way that she will challenge me with the aim of getting a good solution – one that might not involve the firm getting additional fees but will probably bring about the most satisfactory outcome for the client.
