Rebecca Fairclough

Associate Partner

Farleys Solicitors LLP

The service provided by Vince and his team at VTK is fantastic. Even yesterday I instructed them at lunchtime and they hadpersonally served someone with a Statutory Demand by the endof the day. Great service and user friendly!

Shivani Varma

Head of Commercial Law

Kleyman & Co Solicitors

Vince and his team at VTK have been an absolute delight to work with. Managing a busy litigation team means that it is essential for us to work with people who provide a competent and efficient service, particularly when it comes to service of documents and asset traces. Their turn around times are particularly impressive; for instance, there have been plenty of occasions where same day service has been effected and asset reports produced within 48 hours. They play a big role in helping us to keep clients happy which is very important to us. I would highly recommend instructing the team at VTK.

Colin Churchward

Simply the best process server, tracing agent and investigator around. I recommend Vince and VTK Investigations highly to anyone looking for this service.

A star as always, don't know how we've managed without you! Seriously very impressed. I don't think I've come across an agent as efficient as VTK in the whole 17 years doing this job!

Barry Sharples

Without a doubt, the best Process Server and Tracing Agent you will find!

Andrew Everett

Head of Credit

I was introduced to Vince through a mutual partner around 12 months ago when a gap was identified in our recovery process. Since then Vince & VTK Investigations have become a great asset. Always available to have someone on site to meet with clients within 24 hours as well as the urgent document collection where a same day service is required. Communication is never less than fantastic and I would happily recommend Vince to anyone. Thanks for everything.

Debt Recovery Manager

Blacks Solicitors LLP

I cannot recommend VTK Investigations enough. The work they have done for the debt recovery department here at Blacks Solicitors has been brilliant! Throughout my career I have always used an alternative company to do my process serving. I was recommended to use VTK and, although sceptical at first, I can honestly say I have never looked back. Vince outshines every other business in this area for the work that he does, the efficacy and speed is second to none. No wonder he won the Investigator of the Year 2016-2017 and has retained this. His work speaks for itself and this accreditation is thoroughly deserved. The quality of the service he provides is excellent and I would recommend his services to anyone who requires assistance in this area.


Criminal Defence Solicitor

VTK Investigations were recommended to me and I can echo the recommendation without hesitation. I instructed Mr Butler to attempt a site visit to premises in circumstances where it was clear access would be far from straightforward. Not only did Mr Butler secure access to the premises, but also provided a series of high quality photographs and plans which proved instrumental in the successful outcome of the case for my client. Subsequently, I instructed VTK Investigations to serve a Witness Summons on an anxious witness. At all times, Mr Butler and his team acted with complete professionalism.
