Customer Question

We have a former client who owes us a considerable amount of money. We suspect the company may be insolvent, so to test we think our best option would be to serve them with a statutory demand, followed by a winding up order should they ignore the demand.
Our question is, can we serve several statutory demands for different parts of the money owed? We're concerned that if we serve them with one demand they might successfully be able to manufacture a small dispute and have the whole demand thrown out.
They are an English company.

1. Dear Stefan, can you better explain the situation. Does the debt relate to several different elements? That is, can you lawfully divide the debt in to several different elements? What is it that makes you believe that they might be able to manufacture a dispute?
