Where the firm provides a final response to a complaint, if a client remains dissatisfied, they may refer the matter to the Legal Ombudsman who are the independent complaints body established under the Legal Services Act to investigate legal service complaints. The Legal Ombudsman expects complaints to be made to them within one year of the date of the action or omission complaint about or within one year of realising there was a concern. The Ombudsman has discretion to reject complaints where they believe there is no significant loss, distress, inconvenience or detriment or they consider it is too complex to investigate proportionately. Any referral must be made within six months of a firm’s final response. The Ombudsman’s details are as follows:
Telephone 0300 555 0333
