Complaints Policy

We are committed to providing a high quality legal service to all our clients.

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, it would be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage.

If however, you wish to proceed with a formal complaint, please refer to our Complaints Procedure below:-

 

Complaints Procedure

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within 3 days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally, unless inappropriate to do so, involve passing your complaint to our Client Care Partner, Mr Stephen Cordon, who will review your file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
  3. Mr Stephen Cordon (or where appropriate, another senior member of staff) may then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. He will do this within 14 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  4. Within 7 days of the meeting, Mr Cordon (or where appropriate, another senior member of staff) will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
  5. If you do not want a meeting or it is not practicable, Stephen Cordon 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.
  6. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for either Michael Allweis or Amanda Reed, Partners, to review his decision.
  7. We will write to you within 14 days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
  8. If you are still not satisfied, you can then contact the
