Complaints

 

If you have any complaints or concerns about our work for you, please raise these in the first instance with your Client Partner or with our Complaints Partner, Daljit Singh.  We will investigate your complaint promptly and carefully and do what we reasonably can to resolve the difficulties in accordance with our complaints handling procedure.  In any event you are entitled to refer any matter of complaint to the complaints and redress system operated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (http://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/report-solicitor.page) and the Legal Ombudsman.  Any complaint to the Legal Ombudsman needs to be made within six months of your last contact with us.  Before accepting a complaint for investigation the Legal Ombudsman will check you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first.  They will look at the complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.
