What To Do If You Have A Complaint About The Service We Have Provided

Spalter Fisher LLP is committed to providing a professional, efficient and courteous service to all our clients. If you feel that we have failed to achieve an acceptable standard of service we want you to tell us. We regard it as an opportunity to monitor and improve our quality of service. We will investigate your concerns objectively and try to generate a positive and speedy solution.

If you are not happy with the reply provided by the person normally dealing with your case you can refer the matter to his/her supervising partner or manager. The name of the supervising partner or manager will also be found on your initial correspondence.

The supervising partner or manager will consider your complaint and carry out an investigation and will provide a proposed solution within ten business days. If the matter is complex and it takes longer to deal with your complaint, we will contact you within ten business days to give you an approximate timescale of when you can expect a response.

If we believe it would be helpful, we may suggest a meeting.

Referral To The Legal Ombudsman

If you are not satisfied with the final response you may refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman (LeO).

The LeO expects complaints to be made to them within six years from the date of the act/omission about which you are concerned, or three years from when you should have known about the complaint.

The Legal Ombudsman will usually only consider a complaint if our internal complaints procedure has been exhausted within the last six months.
