A Nottingham-based debt recovery legal practice has entered into an exclusive partnership with the BVA.

The agreement means Legal Recoveries and Collection (LRC) will be offering the BVA’s 15,000 members preferential rates on its debt recovery services.

Special status

According to LRC, it was one of the first specialist debt collection agencies in the UK to be granted a specific licence allowing it to operate as a legal firm under its “Alternative Business Structure” status.

This, it says, enables it to conduct litigation (court action) in its own name, without partnering a third party law firm.

Wide offering

LRC offers a wide range of services, from pre-legal collections through to litigation and post-judgement enforcement.

The company’s managing director Andrew Newsome said: “This is a significant achievement for LRC as we already provide debt recovery services to the RVC.

“We very much look forward to our new relationship with the BVA and its members, and our further growth in the animal health care sector.”
