Our approach to fees
The costs of some debt recovery firms often look too good to be true - and that's because they are. There's no small print at Morton Fraser. We'll tell you what we charge up front - no commission, no hidden charges, so you have cost certainty and can budget accordingly.
Where court actions are defended, we will provide clear views on prospects of success along with a cost benefit analysis. We offer a range of feeing structures, including fixed fees for defended court actions.
