We strive to give our clients the best possible service. If at any point a client becomes unhappy or concerned about our service then they should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve any problem. We operate a Complaints Policy that you can access with an email request to mail@seriouslaw.co.uk. 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.

The Legal Ombudsman can help if we are unable to resolve a complaint ourselves. They will look at a complaint independently. Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that a client has tried to resolve the complaint with us first. If they have, then a complaint must be taken to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving a final response to the complaint and
  • No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
  • No more than three years from when it should reasonably have been known there was cause for complaint.
