Most matters can be resolved quickly in accordance with our Complaints Procedure, a copy of which will be provided on request. If resolution is not possible, we shall co-operate fully in having the appropriate review body deal with the problem. In this connection, if your concerns are not satisfied within eight weeks of them being raised with the relevant Partner, you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman.
