Concerns about our service
We of course aim to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about our service then please do let us know immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.
The first step would be to speak with the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If the issue is not resolved at this stage and you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. You can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
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 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; and
- 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.
If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, their contact details are as follows:

We collect, report and publish data on the diversity of our workforce. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like to receive a copy of our latest report.
There has been a recent increase in the number of scams and fraudsters using the names of law firms and their staff with the aim of obtaining monies from credulous recipients of email communications.
The most common element is the redirecting of monies using emails which appear to come from our firm. If you are a client of the firm, we will have provided you with details of our firm’s client account in pdf format by email.
Please check the validity of any emails you receive requesting money on account and/or details of a particular transaction by speaking to either the fee earner dealing with your matter directly or a Partner of our firm. Please also check the bank details you have for us by way of a telephone call to our office before remitting any funds to our client account.
If you believe you have received any unexpected requests purporting to be from us in relation to funds, please contact us as a matter of urgency.
Action Fraud Reports can be lodged with The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau by calling 0300 123 2040 or via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk
Statement of Compliance
Criminal Finances Act 2017
We value our reputation for ethical behaviour and for financial probity and reliability. We recognise that over and above the commission of any crime, any involvement in the facilitation of tax evasion will also reflect adversely on our image and reputation.
We do not tolerate tax evasion, or the facilitation thereof in any circumstances, whether committed by or facilitated by a client, personnel or associated persons/companies.
We are committed to fighting tax evasion and have rigorous policies and procedures in place to detect and prevent the facilitation of tax evasion offences.
We provide regular training on the requirements of the Criminal Finances Act 2017 to all personnel.
We require all personnel to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken wherever tax evasion or the facilitation thereof by any personnel has been proven.
We undertake due diligence on all associated persons/companies to mitigate the risk of facilitation of tax evasion offences and, as part of our due diligence procedures, all agreements with third parties contain suitable provisions to enable termination of such agreements where associated persons/companies are not complying with the provisions of the Criminal Finances Act 2017.
