Complaints

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 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 matter to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint you can read our Complaints Procedure here.

Raising a complaint will not affect the way we handle your case.

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. If you have, you can 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 act/omission; or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was a case for complaint.

If you would like more information about the legal Ombudsman you can contact them at: www.legalombudsman.co.uk; call them on 0300 555 0333; email them at enquiries@legalombudsman.org.uk or write to them at Legal Ombudsman, PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ.
