Complaints Procedure

We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we have provided, then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance, it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns, and we will then do our best to resolve any issues at that stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints policy and procedure Client Complaints Policy. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our professional conduct.  You can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint

The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently, and it will not affect how we handle your case.

Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first, under our internal complaints procedure. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint

and

  • No more than six years from the date of the alleged act or omission; or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
