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

In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the individual who is working on your case to discuss any concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you feel that you would like to make a formal complaint then you can access our full complaints procedure under Complaints Handling headline below.

What happens if I don’t agree with your views on the complaint?

If we are unable to resolve the complaint with you then you can have the complaint independently looked at by the Legal Ombudsman.

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, 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 act/omission or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint

Complaints Handling

We are committed to providing a high standard of service and treating our customers fairly. We understand that we may not always get it right, and we take complaints very seriously.

How do you make a complaint?

You can make your complaint in writing or by speaking to the person you have been dealing with, their manager, or our Client Care Partner, Emma Parkinson.

To help us make sure we have understood your complaint, please provide us with the following information:

  • Your full name, contact details, and any reference number you may have
  • What you think we have done wrong
  • What you think we should do to put things right

How do we deal with your complaint?

We will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days of receiving it enclosing a copy of our Complaints Procedure.

Your complaint will then be investigated by a senior official of the firm who is not directly or indirectly the subject matter of the complaint and we will not charge you for this work.

In order to reach a fair conclusion, we will review the information available to us, which will include all records on our files along with a report from the individual to whom the complaint relates.

We will endeavour to complete our investigation and reach a conclusion as soon as possible. The length of time this will take will be determined by the complexity of the complaint and the extent of the investigation required. During our investigation we may ask you for additional information to help us to reach a conclusion.

We will keep you updated as to the progress of your complaint and the steps being taken to resolve it.

We will aim to provide you with our conclusion within 21 working days the date of receiving your complaint. Should we need to change these timescales, we will let you know and explain why.

Providing our final response

Once we have completed our investigation, we will write to you with the results of our investigation and explain our conclusion.

If you are dissatisfied with our response, you can ask us to review our decision. You will need to let us know any aspects of our response with which you are not satisfied and provide any further comments or documents you wish us to consider. You complaint will then be reviewed by either another Partner or our consultant Gareth Williams within 21 days of your request to review.

Further Advice

If we have been unable to settle your complaint using our internal complaints process, you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman, an independent complaints body, established under the Legal Services Act 2007 that deals with legal services complaints.

The Legal Ombudsman can investigate complaints up to six years from the date of the problem or within three years of when you found out the problem. You have six months from the date of our final letter in which to complain to the Legal Ombudsman.
