Following the recent success at this year’s CCR Credit Excellence Awards, Flint Bishop are now in the running for further accolades having been shortlisted in three categories for the 2018 CICM British Credit Awards.
The CICM, Europe’s largest credit association, is the centre of expertise for credit management and promotes excellence and best-practice. The CICM British Credit Awards rewards best performance and innovation shown by individuals and organisations across the UK.
The shortlist nominations for ‘Legal Team of the Year’ and ‘Third Party Debt Collection Team of the Year’ are representative of the outstanding teamwork and efficiencies provided by Flint Bishop’s Commercial Debt Recovery department.
FB Collections Ltd, a partner firm of Flint Bishop, has also been shortlisted for the ‘Project of the Year’ award. This new company was strategically set-up to broaden the firm’s overall B2B legal recovery offering by providing ‘white labelled’ outsourced early collections at a stage prior to debt recovery and legal action.
FB Collections has seen rapid growth as a result of business acquired through positive benchmarking against both internal collection teams and other outsourced solution. In the first year of trading, this sub-brand of Flint Bishop has successfully managed the collection of over £36m referred from one particular client in the telecoms industry.
Qamer Ghafoor, Managing Partner of Commercial Services and Head of Litigation at Flint Bishop LLP comments;
“To be shortlisted in three categories at two subsequent national debt recovery awards is a fantastic achievement and is evident of the level of service and efficiencies our team provides to all our clients on a daily basis.
We have the systems, speed, flexible pricing and capability to rival any debt collection agency or law firm in the industry. Flint Bishop is now in a position to celebrate continual debt recovery success and excellence as one of the premier firms in the country.”
The award ceremony will take place on the Thursday 8th February 2018 at The Royal Lancaster London Hotel.
