The firm is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 to carry out investment-related contracts and we not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. However, we are included on the register maintained by the Financial Conduct Authority so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts.
This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by Solicitors Regulation Authority. The register can be accessed via the Financial Conduct Authority website at www.fca.org.uk/register.
We want to give you the best possible service. 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 we suggest that you discuss your concerns with the partner who is responsible for your matter. If the matter partner is unable to resolve the matter to your satisfaction, or you wish to make a more formal complaint anyway, please use the following procedure.
Procedure for Formal Complaints
Please put your formal complaint in writing, addressed to the Senior Partner, including the reasons for dissatisfaction and any suggested remedy in as much detail as possible. If the Senior Partner is the matter partner, the complaint in writing should be addressed to the Compliance Officer for Legal Practice (COLP). If you prefer to explain the details of your complaint, including the reasons for dissatisfaction and any suggested remedy, at a meeting with the Senior Partner or COLP as appropriate, this will be scheduled within seven days of a written request for a meeting being received, or within seven days of the return of the Senior Partner or COLP if they will then be absent.
We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of the complaint, with a copy of this procedure, within three days of receipt of details of your complaint (whether by letter or at a meeting)
We will try to give you our substantive response to your complaint within 14 days of three days of receipt of details of your complaint (whether by letter or at a meeting), wherever it is practicable to investigate it thoroughly in this period. If this is not practicable, we will before the end of that period explain why and provide you with our expected timetable for doing so. The maximum period for providing a substantive response will be four weeks from receipt of details of your complaint (whether by letter or at a meeting).
If the problem cannot be resolved within a period of 8 weeks of details of your complaint (whether by letter or at a meeting), you may use the complaints and redress scheme operated by the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman is an independent and impartial lay body for members of the public who wish to make a complaint about a solicitor who has acted for them. It operates within a regulatory and disciplinary framework set, monitored and enforced by the regulatory body for solicitors, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”). The Legal Ombudsman also works closely with the Law Society, the body that represents solicitors in England and Wales. See www.legalombudsman.org.uk for further details or write to:
PO Box 6806
0300 555 0333/+44 121 245 3050
Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first.
If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
- Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint
- No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
- No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can also help you if you are concerned about behaviour such as dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic.
