The Jonathan Lea Network | Debt Management Recovery Seminar

Debt Management Recovery and Enforcement in a Post-Pandemic World Seminar

We recently co-hosted our first in-person seminar of the year at the Hotel Du Vin in Brighton in partnership with our friends at Rutherford’s Bailiff & Collection Services.

The topic was ‘Debt recovery, management and enforcing in a post-pandemic world’ which offered interesting insights into how to avoid debts as well as tips on effective debt-management solutions.

It was also a fantastic long-awaited opportunity to get together and network in person at a fabulous venue in the heart of The Brighton Lanes area.

Although as a firm we have greatly benefited from the increased use of video-conference tools like Zoom, nothing beats meeting and catching up with people in the flesh. All attendees particularly enjoyed both a hearty breakfast at the start and then later a decent spread for lunch after the seminar.

The seminar was led and mostly presented by our senior dispute resolution solicitor Kent Reynolds.

Andreea Rusu, added “I was very honoured as a trainee solicitor in the litigation seat to have the opportunity to present at the Debt Recovery Seminar together with my senior solicitor Kent Reynolds, who has over 15 years of experience in dispute resolution and Michala Rutherford, who is an enforcement specialist and the founder of Rutherford’s Bailiff and Collection Services.

It also felt really nice to be able to finally meet people in person after a break of 18 months. Online events are great, but something is missing, you cannot feel the audience’s energy.

I look forward to JLN’s next networking event.”

About Jonathan Lea

Jonathan is a specialist business law solicitor who has been practising for over 18 years, starting at the top international City firms before then spending some time at a couple of smaller practices. In 2013 he started working on a self-employed basis as a consultant solicitor, while in 2019 The Jonathan Lea Network became a SRA regulated law firm itself after Jonathan got tired of spending all day referring clients and work to other law firms.

The Jonathan Lea Network is now a full service firm of solicitors that employs senior and junior solicitors, trainee solicitors, paralegals and administration staff who all work from a modern open plan office in Haywards Heath. This close-knit retained team is enhanced by a trusted network of specialist consultant solicitors who work remotely and, where relevant, combine seamlessly with the central team.
