Charles Noakes, Paralegal


Charles acts on behalf of local authorities and SMEs in the UK and abroad, to obtain and enforce judgements against debtors. Charles has been working in his current role for over 4 years and has a great amount of experience in debt recovery and litigation.

Before working in law, Charles gained a degree in accountancy and finance at Hertfordshire University and went on to work in the property industry for several years. He has been working as a paralegal since 2013.

He is able to trace debtors and locate their assets, even when very little information is known and provided by the client.

He was once instructed by a banking client to recover a substantial sum from an individual, with only the debtor’s name and email address available. Whilst the client was about to give up, Charles located the debtor’s current address and assets worth over £1 million. He subsequently commenced bankruptcy proceedings against the debtor and the debt was settled before the court hearing.

Charles is a Debt Recovery Manager at our sister firm, Welbeck Solicitors LLP.

Quirky fact
