Complaints handling

We aim to give our clients high quality advice and client service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance please contact the person who is dealing with your matter or the partner supervising your matter to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage.

If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints policy here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your matter.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. You can find out more about raising your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority by clicking here.

The Legal Ombudsman may be able to help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. The Legal Ombudsman deals with complaints from:

  • individuals
  • micro-enterprises (broadly businesses or enterprises with fewer than ten employees and turnover or assets not exceeding €2m)
  • charities, clubs, associations or organisations with less than £1m net annual income
  • trustees of a trust valued at less than £1m
  • personal representatives or beneficiaries of the estate of an individual who had not complained to the Legal Ombudsman before their death

If the Legal Ombudsman accepts your complaint for investigation it will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your matter.
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.
