Complaints Handling Procedure
Our complaints policy
We are committed to providing a high-quality legal service to all our clients. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards.
If you have a complaint, please contact us with the details.
What will happen next?
1. We will aim to send you a letter or email acknowledging receipt of your written complaint within two working days of receiving it (allowing for weekends and bank holidays) explaining who is dealing with the complaint and enclosing a copy of this procedure.
2. We will record your complaint on our register and open a complaint file.
3. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to our designated complaints handler who will review your complaint. We aim to provide a full response to your complaint within 10 working days, however if your complaint requires a more detailed investigation and requires more time, you will be informed accordingly.
4. We will then, if required, discuss the matter with you with the aim of resolving the complaint directly.
5. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for someone unconnected with the matter at the firm to review the decision.
6. We will aim to write to you within a further 10 working days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons. If for any reason additional time is required to carry out the final review, we will let you know.
7. If you are still not satisfied, you can then contact the Legal Ombudsman about your complaint at:
PO Box 6806,
Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint or within six years of the act or omission about which you are complaining occurring (or if outside of this period, within three years of when you should reasonably have been aware of it). For further information, you should contact the Legal Ombudsman on 0300 555 0333 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
