Complaints

If at any time you would like to discuss with us how our service to you could be improved or if you are dissatisfied with the service you are receiving, please let us know by contacting the partner dealing with your matter or the firm's complaints partner, Jayne Anderton. We shall look at any complaint carefully and promptly and do all we can to explain the position to you. If we have given you less than satisfactory service, we shall try to do everything reasonable to put it right. Clients of the firm are entitled to a copy of the firm's complaints handling procedure on request. In the event of your not being satisfied by our response, you may refer the matter to the Legal Complaints Service which is the independent complaints handling body of the Law Society. The contact details for the Legal Complaints Service are as follows: Victoria Court, 8 Dormer Place, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV32 5AE (postal address); 01928 820082 (telephone); enquiries@legalcomplaints.org.uk (email address); www.legalcomplaints.org.uk/home.page (website).

Financial Services and Markets Act 2000

We are not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, but we are able, in certain circumstances, to offer a limited range of investment services to the client because we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services we have been engaged to provide.

Insurance mediation

We are not authorised by the Financial Services Authority so we are unable to carry on insurance mediation activity, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts. The register of practitioners authorized to carry on such activities can be accessed via the Financial Services Authority website at www.fsa.gov.uk.

If you have any problem with the service we have provided for you then please let us know. We will try to resolve any problem quickly and operate an internal complaints handling system to help us to resolve the problem between ourselves. If for any reason we are unable to resolve the problem between us, then we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and complaints and redress mechanisms are provided through the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Legal Complaints Service.

The Law Society is a designated professional body for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, but responsibility for regulation and complaints handling has been separated from the Law Society’s representative functions. The Solicitors Regulation Authority is the independent regulatory body of the Law Society and the Legal Complaints Service is the independent complaints handling body of the Law Society.
