Complaint’s handling procedure

We have a complaints handling procedure to ensure that any complaint about the service we provide is dealt with appropriately.


  • If you wish to make a complaint about our service or invoice, please put your complaint in writing to the solicitor concerned. Your letter of complaint will be acknowledged within two days and the solicitor will inform the Client Care Solicitor immediately.


  • If the solicitor cannot resolve the complaint to your satisfaction, it will be referred to the solicitor’s team leader. If the team leader is unable to resolve your complaint, then it will be referred to the Client Care Solicitor who will contact you with a view to trying to resolve the complaint.


  • Unless your complaint can be resolved by correspondence, you may be invited to a meeting or a video call with the Client Care Solicitor and the solicitor concerned. After full consultation with both parties, the Client Care Solicitor will write to you with a decision or a proposal for the resolution of your complaint.


  • If your complaint is about the Client Care Solicitor, it will be referred to the Principle for resolution.


  • We aim to resolve your complaint within eight weeks from receipt of your letter of complaint.


  • We will communicate with you in the most convenient way for you.


  • We will not make any charge for handling your complaint.


  • If you are not satisfied with our final response, you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman. Any complaint made to the Legal Ombudsman must usually be made within six months of our final written response to your complaint or within six years of the act or omission you are complaining about occurring (of if outside of this period, within the three years of when you should reasonable have been made aware of it). If your complaint refers to an invoice, you have an additional right to challenge the invoice by the FCA website at


  •  If we have instructed a barrister on your behalf, you have a right to complain about the service provided by that barrister. If you wish to make such a complaint, please inform the solicitor advising you and we will provide you with the necessary complaint process information. You can also make a complaint about a barrister directly to the Legal Ombudsman.
