Our Complaints Policy

We are committed to providing a high-quality legal service to all our clients.  When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it.  This will help us to improve our standards.

If you have a complaint about our service, please contact us with the details. We have eight weeks to consider your complaint and will do so fairly, promptly and free of charge. If we have not resolved it within this time you may complain to the Legal Ombudsman for England and Wales.

Our policy for dealing with such complaints is as follows:

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within three days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to Richard Kelly, who will review your matter file and speak to the member(s) of staff who acted for you.
  3. Richard Kelly will 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 three days of the meeting, Richard Kelly 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 possible, Richard Kelly 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 someone unconnected with the matter at the firm to review the decision. In the event that your complaint relates to Richard Kelly, Anthony Tama will deal with your complaint in the manner set out above.
  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 Legal Ombudsman about your complaint. The Legal Ombudsman can be reached at:

Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint and within six years of the act or omission about which you are complaining occurring (or if outside of this period, within three years of when you should reasonably have been aware of it). For further information, you should contact the Legal Ombudsman or visit: https://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/.
