We worked with FuelsEurope – formerly known as Europia – the voice of the European petroleum refining industry. It’s a division of the European Petroleum Refiners Association, which has 42 members.
What we did:
FuelsEurope approached us for advice and help with recovering outstanding membership fees from one of the largest petroleum companies in the world. The company had been ignoring FuelsEurope’s requests for payment.
We advised the board on a strategy, agreeing to go in hard with a ‘statutory demand’. It worked – and we had the money back in four days. Before we came in, the debt had been unpaid for years.
What they said:
‘We used Capital to recover a large debt owed to us by an international company who were ignoring our requests for payment. Guto Llewelyn was very clear and decisive – his strategy worked perfectly and we were paid every single penny, plus interest and costs, within four days of his involvement. We were particularly impressed by the cost effectiveness and the fact that this great service is run by a team of experienced lawyers, who provided us with valuable advice at the outset.’ Gloria Crichlow, In-House Counsel, Fuels Europe
