Complaint Procedure & Support

 

Complaints Procedure:

 

We are committed to providing high quality legal services and client care to all our clients.

When something goes wrong, we will try to put it right but in order to do this we need to be told about it. It is therefore beneficial to encourage clients to complain when they are unhappy with an aspect of Lawson-West. This in turn will help us to improve our service and our standards in general.

In order for clients to lodge a complaint we have a clear set procedure in place. This also takes into account the Law Society’s guidance to complaints and the Legal Ombudsman’s role.

Please refer to the ‘Resolving a Complaint’ sheet in conjunction with this procedure to understand the next steps to take and how the whole process works.

If you have not received a response from us about your complaint, please check the email address you have used or email vthakerar@lawson-west.co.uk. If you have not heard from us after eight weeks, you can also contact the Legal Ombudsman about your complaint. They deal with cases surrounding poor service. The Legal Ombudsman provides an online Complaint Checker for new complaints; this is the quickest and easiest way to register a complaint with them at the end of eight weeks. You can also get in touch with them by email or post
