We much prefer that substantial or complicated complaints are dealt with in writing – however, we do not have any set forms that we use for this purpose. Should there be any circumstances which make it difficult for you to make a complaint in writing, please phone Liam O’Shea on 01283 531366.
We will investigate your complaint and ultimately provide a final written response. This will normally involve the following steps:
Any complaint to the Legal Ombudsman (‘Ombudsman’) must usually be made within six months of the date of our final written response on your complaint but for further information, you can visit the Ombudsman’s website at www.legalombudsman.org.uk. There is no charge for the Ombudsman’s services.
The Ombudsman’s contact details are as follows:
PO Box 6806
Helpline: 0300 555 0333
We currently do not use any Alternative Dispute Resolution providers to resolve complaints and unresolved complaints about our services can be dealt with by the Legal Ombudsman under the statutory complaints scheme.
