What happens next?

Once we have received your complaint, we will send an acknowledgement of your

submission within two working days confirming the issues you have raised. We may ask for

further details from you in order to make a thorough and fair assessment of your case.

We will then carry out a detailed review of your file regarding your comments. Following this

we will produce a full response with proposed solutions with the aim to conclude the matter

within 8 weeks from the complaint being raised. If your matter is urgent and requires a

quicker response, please make this known and we will try to accommodate an appropriate

deadline.

What if my complaint is not resolved?

If you are not satisfied with our response, after 8 weeks from your initial complaint you have

the right to escalate your concerns to the Legal Ombudsman, which investigates issues of

legal service such as communication, advice or legal fees.

Full details of the Legal Ombudsman complaints procedure can be found here:

If your complaint relates to our conduct, such as allegations of dishonesty or fraud, you may

escalate your concerns through our regulator, the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
