Martin Kingman

Chief Executive Officer

Martin started his legal career as a paralegal in the commercial litigation/dispute resolution team of a large regional law firm in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. In 2006, while working there, he qualified as a Legal Executive. Later that year he moved to head up a small debt recovery and insolvency team at another large regional firm in Canterbury and Chatham. He built and developed the ream and then moved on in 2011 to work in-house at a large construction company, helping them to restructure the business.  Since 2013, Martin has been self-employed as a business management consultant, specialising in managing change and system development. But the lure of debt collection proved too much and in June 2014, following demand from many ex-clients, Martin established Professional Legal Collections, now part of Pro-Legal Group Limited.

Martin has been able to combine his management skills and debt recovery expertise in Professional Legal Collections. His technological and systems competency, legal skills and knowledge as well as business and management consultancy experience allow the Pro-Legal Group as a whole to offer a unique blend of practical, commercial and legally astute advice. It’s not just about chasing unpaid debts, many clients find that the insolvency expertise is essential in evaluating business plans and ensuring that all decision are considered from every angle rather than just within mainstream thinking.

Martin and his former debt recovery team was recognised in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners Guide to the legal progression. He regularly writes articles and presents seminars on debt recovery, credit control and insolvency.

When he’s not managing the chasing down of debts or consulting on businesses, Martin is a volunteer and trustee of Kent Search and Rescue. He operates as a Search Manager and has overall responsibility for any operational deployment of up to 100 members in conjunction with Kent Police.

Martin is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives whose members are independently regulated by CILEx Regulation. He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management. He is also an associate member of both the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment and the Institute of Occupation Safety and Health. Martin is also an affiliate member of the Chartered Quality Institute. Martin also holds qualifications for health and safety, environmental and quality including 9001 and 27001 lead auditor and is also a mental health first-aider.
