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.
Our complaints procedure
If you have a complaint, please contact us with the details.
What will happen next?
- We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within 7 days of us receiving the complaint, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
- We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to our client care partner, Mr Nicholas Purser, who will review your matter file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
- Mr Nicholas Purser will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. He will do this within 21 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
- Within seven days of the meeting, Mr Nicholas Purser will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
- If you do not want a meeting or it is not possible, Mr Nicholas Purser will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his suggestions for resolving the matter, within 21 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
- At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for another partner at the firm to review Mr Purser’s suggestions and the complaint in an attempt to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction.
- We will write to you within 21 days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
- If you are still not satisfied, you can then contact the Office of the Legal Services Ombudsman at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ about your complaint. Any complaint to the Legal Services Ombudsman must usually be made within six months of the date of our final decision on your complaint but for further information, you should contact the Legal Services Ombudsman on 0300 555 0333 or visit www.legalombudsman.org.uk
