What I do

I lead the Debt Recovery team and provide advice to clients regarding credit control and ensuring that the invoices they raise are paid. I regularly attend clients’ offices to review their internal credit control procedures and to ensure that a robust process is in place.

When invoices are left unpaid, I seek to recover the sums due to my clients by using the correct legal process to ensure the debt is recovered. I act for a large number of clients including universities, utility companies, independent schools, veterinary surgeries and companies within the fast-moving consumer goods sector. I am also the Head of Business Development for the firm.

I think I bring “thinking outside of the box” to the teams within which I work. I like to do things differently and not follow the norm. I believe that makes you memorable.

I have a young daughter and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband visiting National Trust sites. I also enjoy attending the gym and going for a run. I love yoga but struggle to find quiet time!

I would not hesitate at all to recommend Claire Twells. She is professional, approachable understanding and thorough. She goes above and beyond to help her clients and has real empathy for the situation that you find yourself in. She gives great, tempered advice and helps to take the emotional stress out of having to deal with difficult people. Look no further for your debt recovery issues!
