Making a complaint to us

If you feel unhappy about any aspect of our service please raise your dissatisfaction with the person who is dealing with your case.  If you think this is inappropriate, please contact the solicitor with overall responsibility for your case.  You will find details in the Confirmation of Instructions Letter received at the start of your case.

If after doing the above, you remain dissatisfied and you wish to make a formal complaint please contact our Managing Partner, Simon Morris.  Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint

The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves.  They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.

Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint direct with us first.  If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving our final response to your complaint


  • No more than one year from the date of the act or omission being complained about; or
  • No more than one year from the date when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
