introPROTECT are the backdoor hire, fee dispute and debt recovery experts. Founded by Barry Cullen, who has over 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry - now as solicitor and previously at the coalface as a recruiter and agency owner - Barry and our team have a complete understanding of the industry, its key players and the pressures affecting them.

We specialise in preventing and successfully resolving backdoor hire, rebate and other fee disputes and recovering unpaid fees.

Our solutions include:

  • RECOVER - Recovering disputed fees
  • DETECT - Detecting backdoor hires
  • PREVENT - Preventing recruiters being cut out of deals

As long as there are recruiters, clients and candidates; there will always be backdoor hire and fee disputes. It’s an inherent risk for any contingent recruiter because there will always be the temptation for some clients to approach candidates direct and cut the recruiter out of the deal.

This kind of practice wouldn’t be accepted in any other industry. Nowhere else would people be expected to work hard, successfully deliver their goods or services, but not be rewarded or recognised for their efforts.

With our knowledge and experience (both as lawyers and recruiters), introPROTECT has a unique perspective and the skills needed to succeed in this field. As practicing solicitors we know our way around the legal system. This means not only can we spot a winning case but we’re in a position to do something about it.

With cutting edge technology we can analyse your introduction data and police your candidates’ movements to find potential cases. We combine this with human quality assurance techniques to ensure we uncover as many quality lost fees as possible.

We work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis - because we don’t charge upfront fees or fixed costs per introduction, we only get paid when you get paid.
