We strive to provide the best possible service to you and always welcome feedback. However, if you ever become unhappy or concerned about our service, please let us know, so we can quickly resolve any issues.
How to make a complaint?
The best person to talk to about any issues is your file handler. They should be able to resolve any concerns quite promptly. However, you may want to make a formal complaint.
Our complaints process
Formal complaints should usually made in writing and emailed to the Complaints Partner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We keep a record of all complaints to make sure our processes and staff provide the best service we can. We monitor this data to look for improvements as we would hate to disappoint another client in a similar way. Please don’t worry, if you make a complaint, we will continue to work hard on your case to get you the best outcome possible.
Our Complaints Partner will review your file and investigate your complaint. We have eight weeks to consider and resolve your complaint. We will write to you to let you know the outcome of that investigation with any corrective action or next steps.
If you are not satisfied with our response, you can ask for another senior partner of the firm to look at it again.
All our complaints are recorded and reported to our Head of Operations, Complaints Partner, Chief Executive Officer and our Head of Legal Practice.
What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint
The Legal Ombudsman is an independent body who can help if we cannot resolve your complaint. They will normally only investigate a complaint once we have given our final response.
The Legal Ombudsman will then investigate your complaint independently. They will only deal with complaints made to them:
- Within six months of receiving our final response
- 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 cause for complaint.

Call: 0300 555 0333 between 9.00 to 17.00.
