Complaints procedure

Redmans are committed to providing a high standard of service to our clients, however, we understand that you may feel that we may not always get it right.  If you have a complaint about the service you have received or your bill please contact us.  We will respond to any concerns you may have and we will do everything we can to sort out your complaint quickly and efficiently.

You can raise your complaint by letter or email using the following details:

  • Letter: Complaints Manager, Redmans, Parkshot House, 5 Kew Road, Richmond, TW9 2PR
  • Email: mailbox@redmans.co.uk

Please mark your letter or email ‘Complaint’.

Alternatively, you may raise your complaint with the fee earner who has been dealing with your case.

Please note that you should make your complaint to us within 6 months of the last correspondence you receive from us or 1 year of the act or omission about which you are complaining occurring

If you have any special needs to enable you to bring your complaint to us please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.

To help us make sure we have understood your complaint, and not missed anything, please tell us:

  • your full name, contact details and any reference number you may have for your case;
  • what you think we have done wrong; and
  • what you think we should do to put things right.

How we will deal with your complaint

We have up to eight weeks to consider your complaint but will endeavour to deal with it as quickly as possible.  If we have not resolved it within this time you may complain to the Legal Ombudsman.

Stage 1

We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within 5 working days of receiving the complaint.

The Practice Manager will investigate your complaint and provide a substantive response within 4 weeks of the date of receiving your complaint.

We may be able to deal with the matter in a phone call, or we may need to carry out a detailed review of your case.   In all cases we will write to you to tell you the outcome of your complaint and to give you the opportunity to have your complaint reviewed if you are not satisfied with the outcome.

Stage 2

If you are not satisfied with our response you should contact us again and we will arrange for the file to be reviewed by the Complaints Manager.  When contacting us please explain why you continue to be dissatisfied.

Your complaint will be acknowledged within 5 working days of receiving the complaint and we will provide a substantive response within 20 working days from receiving your letter.

If your complaint is particularly complex and we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why and provide you with an updated timescale.

If, at the end of the above process, you continue to be dissatisfied with our response, you can contact the Legal Ombudsman at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ or via telephone on 0300 555 0333. The Ombudsman’s web address is www.legalombudsman.org.uk/.

Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within 6 months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint or within 1 year of the act or omission about which you are complaining occurring (or you becoming aware of it).

    The service I received was friendly and professional. I appreciated the timely communications and Mel was always available for any questions I had. I'd definitely recommend Redmans and will use them in a heartbeat should the situation arise again.

    Redmans Solicitors recently helped me navigate a recent employment termination settlement agreement. Chris Hadrill is very professional and you will be in good hands with him. I score Redmans 4 out of 5 because things had to move fast and felt the team member assigned to my case wasn't very responsive at times. Having said that, I was very happy with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

    Chris Hadrill is hugely impressive - the right blend of assured calm and savvy professionalism. I've already recommended him to friends and family.

    I was hugely impressed with the ease of being able to work with Redmans Solicitors and their professional approach. Mel was really clear around the process, and costings required and I felt comfortable throughout. I would certainly recommend.

    I was made a settlement offer by my employer to terminate my emplyment early. Redmans helped me understand the offer, and ensured that it was fair for someone in my position. They made a very stressful situation much easier. Excellent service.

    Overall I am satisfied with the performance from Redmans. The reason I have given 4 stars is that I had quite a lot difficulty in contacting the representative which was initially nominated for me. However, when I contacted Chris instead, he was excellent over the phone and secured a great outcome in short order. I would recommend Redmans Solicitors.

    Chris and Redmans were a great help. Effective and efficient, quick response from my first enquiry and then straightforward and attentive throughout with ultimately a positive outcome. I will use them again and recommend them.

    Chris and his team were excellent. They provided sound advice and consultation that resulted in more cash than was offered. Would definitely recommend.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mel Chin, for all her support during my settlement process. Where she provided a professional service and was understanding.

    I don’t normally write reviews, but thought it was time on this occasion. Just wanted to say that I highly recommend Redmans - especially Rana Tandon, who helped me navigate around my employment contract. Rana was meticulous and thorough and all over my needs. Would I use Redmans again ? ..absolutely

    Very thorough and professional service. I was very nervous about my employment case, as I had never dealt with anything like it before. However, the solicitors who handled my case made sure I understood everything. I was never kept in the dark and Redmans kept me constantly informed about what was going on with my case. I would definitely recommend Redmans Solicitors

    Chris and Sacha were great throughout the entire process. Chris was very helpful once the initial discussions with my company began and before we agreed there was a case. Sacha was very responsive, patient and helpful throughout ensuring I felt I had the right information to make the best decision on next steps. A close friend and wife have both used Redmans in the past few years for unfair dismissals and the service continues to be first-class and I would strongly recommend them again. They definitely help reduce the anxiety that comes with uncertainty around new processes and situations. Thank you!
