Serious consideration has been given to this decision however we have elected to postpone face-to-face contact for the safety of the wider community as well as our agents. We have been informed by a number of clients of differing policies and approaches that we will action accordingly.

Files where face-to-face contact is already occurring will be monitored closely.
COLLECTION LAW PARTNERS (FEE ACCOUNTS)
The Law Firm will continue to provide all services, and will follow our client’s policies and instructions. Be informed that we are aware that some process servers may no longer be providing face to face services at this time. This decision is understood and respected. There may be restrictions on other services available through the various Courts.
We will keep you informed on a matter by matter basis.
