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. The term’ Complaints’ include any expressions of dissatisfaction about our service.

At first it would be helpful if you could discuss any concerns which you have about our service or how it might be improved with the lawyer dealing with your matter. If the lawyer dealing cannot resolve your concern informally, or if the issue is of such a serious nature that you do not feel comfortable raising it with your lawyer, then you may discuss this with our complaints director as a complaint under this policy.

If you have a complaint, please contact us with the details. We have eight weeks to consider your complaint. If we have not resolved it within this time you may complain to the Legal Ombudsman or Ombudsman service (see 8 and 9 below).

What will happen next?

  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 record your complaint in our central register.
  3. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to our client care partner, Mark Jones, who will review your matter file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you. Mark Jones is based at

    Eagle Chambers,

    17 Fenwick Street,


    L2 7LS

    0151 286 9594.

  4. Mark Jones will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. S/he will do this within 14 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  5. Within three days of the meeting, Mark Jones will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions s/he has agreed with you.
  6. If you do not want a meeting or it is not possible, Mark Jones will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his/her suggestions for resolving the matter, within 21 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  7. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for Dominic McNabb or someone unconnected with the matter at the firm to review the decision. If the complaint is about Mark Jones, Dominic McNabb will deal with the initial complaint (2-5 above).
  8. 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.
  9. If your complaint still remains unresolved and / or you are still not satisfied, you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman.
