Escalate Dispute Resolution

Escalate Dispute Resolution

With the average commercial dispute taking around 18 months to settle, it is understandable why some small to medium businesses decide to write-off what is owed to them. Costs can quickly mount up and before you know it, can equal the damages you are claiming. Through the traditional process, there are substantial upfront court costs you are required to pay and should your claim be unsuccessful, you could be liable for some or all of the defendant’s costs, as well as your own.

This is exactly why My Debt Recovery have become part of an innovative dispute resolution process called Escalate. We feel that all small to medium businesses should be able to effectively pursue commercial disputes without the upfront costs and financial burden on their business.

What are the benefits of using Escalate?

  • Complete transparency – Escalate works on a fixed fee basis so you’ll know from the very start what your fee will be should your claim be successful


  • Fast results – Escalate aims to get you your money back within three months, if not, you’ll have the financial backing to take your dispute all the way to the High Court


  • No financial risk because you don’t pay a penny unless your claim is successful


  • Escalate covers all upfront costs so you don’t have that initial outlay

What type of disputes can Escalate pursue?

Escalate covers all types of commercial disputes that are up to three years old including bad debt, negligence and contractual.

How does Escalate work?

Escalate follows a two-stage process:


The first stage of this process is engaging experienced debt recovery specialists to negotiate on your behalf. My Debt Recovery are Escalate’s exclusive front-end debt collection agency so you can trust that you have an experienced team working on your behalf to recover what is owed to you. 

The defendant is provided with incentives to settle the debt within three months and as mentioned above, this work is based on a fixed fee which you won’t pay unless the debt is recovered.


If the defendant is still unwilling to settle within three months, we move into the Litigation stage of the process. Escalate will cover the whole litigation process for you including paying upfront court costs and counsel fees, all the way up to the High Court.

Unlike the traditional route, if you lose your case, you won’t have to pay the defendant’s costs.
