Cooper Nimmo is committed to a high quality legal advice and client care.
All firms of solicitors are obliged to attempt to resolve problems that clients may have with the service provided. It is therefore important that you immediately raise your concerns with us. We value you and would not wish to think you have reason to be unhappy with us.
If you have any problem with the service we have provided for you then please let us know. We will try to resolve any problem quickly and operate an internal complaints handling system to help us to resolve the problem between ourselves. If for any reason we are unable to resolve the problem between us, then we are regulated by the Law Society which also provides a complaints and redress scheme.
Complaints will be dealt with under the following protocol.
In the event of a complaint, you should raise the concern in the first place with the person dealing with the particular matter.
If this does not resolve the problem you should then contact the supervising Partner, whose name will have been notified at the outset of the transaction.
The complaint does not have to be put in writing, although setting out clearly the issues and the action you wish us to take may help us to resolve your concerns more quickly.
If these steps do not resolve the problem you should contact the client care Partner, by telephoning or writing. She is Deborah Wylie. A full copy of the practice’s complaints procedure is available on request.
If the complaint is still not resolved at the end of this complaints process you have the right to refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton WV1 9WJ; telephone: 0300 555 0333; website: www.legalombudsman.org.uk. Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint.
