What will happen next?

  1. We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint, in writing, within three days of receiving it and enclose a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to our client care partner, Mohammed Usman, who will review your matter file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
