Back to team


David joined Watson Ramsbottom in May 2019 as a Litigation Executive having amassed over a decade of litigation experience representing companies and firms, both nationally and internationally. Having been asked to advise, design and implement debt recovery procedures, David brings his wealth of knowledge of enforcement proceedings to advise his clients, not only the merits of their case, but also upon prospects of recovering any judgement awarded.

David attributes his success as a litigator to the team he works with including an excellent team of secretaries, paralegals, trainees, and solicitors which ensures that case work is appropriately distributed to keep costs reasonable and proportionate to the sums involved. David has built up a network of specialist barristers, and instructs barristers from Junior Counsel to Kings Counsel, which combined with his litigation colleagues, ensures client’s get the benefit of a full legal team whilst not breaking the bank. David also works closely with other departments within Watson Ramsbottom and his client’s benefit from instructing a firm that is multi-disciplined so their interests can be looked after by the same firm.

Whilst David can take instructions on a wide variety of cases nationally, David regularly takes instructions in Lancashire, Manchester and Yorkshire on;

Every day the average person will enter at least one contract. It is only when things go wrong, do we then consider and examine the transaction closely.

For many businesses credit control/debt collection can be a real problem, especially if the monies owed are relatively small.

With a view to helping our clients, we at Watson Ramsbottom have introduced our Debt Collection Fee Structure – offering clients the best elements of a debt recovery agent (the price!) with the specialised knowledge of a solicitor.

Housing Issues

Housing Law is becoming increasingly important in society today – with more people renting, increasing pressure being put upon landlords by their own lenders, and more mortgage companies than ever seeking possession of properties.

We can assist Tenants or Homeowners with issues they are facing with their homes, and can help Landlords or Agents across all aspects of Housing Law.

Judgement Enforcement
