Our firm aims to offer all our clients an efficient and effective service and we are confident that we will do so. However, should there be any aspect of our service, or about our bill, with which you are unhappy please contact the partner who is handling your matter or your relationship partner or our Managing Partner, Chris Wilkinson (cwilkinson@MaplesTeesdale.co.uk), who will do his best to resolve any problems and provide you with information on how the complaint will be dealt with, including a copy of our written complaints procedure.
If we are not able satisfactorily to resolve the dispute without the involvement of a third party, you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman an independent complaints body, established under the Legal Services Act 2007, that deals with legal services complaints. Detailed information about the Legal Ombudsman is available on its website at www.legalombudsman.org.uk or by contacting the Ombudsman by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 0300 555 0333. Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman no later than 12 months after finding there is a problem and within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can also help you if you have any complaints which relate to the professional rules made by the SRA and which can be found at https://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/standards-regulations.
Alternative complaints bodies (such as Ombudsman Services – www.ombudsman-services.org) exist which are competent to deal with complaints about legal services should you and our firm wish to use such a scheme. We do not agree to use that scheme.
