It is important that you raise any problems or concerns with us so that they can be resolved quickly and efficiently. We value you as our client and would not wish to think you have any reason to be unhappy with our service.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. They are our regulators and deal with concerns such as dishonesty (for example taking or losing your money) or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. You can raise any such concerns with them on their website.

What do to if we cannot resolve your complaint

If we cannot resolve your complaint, you can speak directly to the Legal Ombudsman, provided that you fit one of the following categories:-

  • an individual.
  • a business or enterprise that was a micro-enterprise (European Union definition) when it referred the complaint to the authorised person.
  • a charity that had an annual income net of tax of less than £1 million when it referred the complaint to the authorised person.
  • a club/association/organisation, the affairs of which are managed by its members/a committee/a committee of its members, that had an annual income net of tax of less than £1 million when it referred the complaint to the authorised person.
  • a trustee of a trust that had an asset value of less than £1million when it referred the complaint to the authorised person.
  • a personal representative or beneficiary of the estate of a person who, before he/she died, had not referred the complaint to the Legal Ombudsman.

 They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case. The Legal Ombudsman service is free of charge and can investigate complaints about the legal service you have received from us.

 Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first.

 The Legal Ombudsman expects complaints to be made to them within one year of the date of the act or omission about which you are concerned or within one year of you realising there was a concern. You must also refer your concerns to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of our final response to you.
