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.

We will investigate your complaint and provide a substantive response within 20 working days 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.  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).

    I have been very pleased with the support I got from Redmans Solicitors on my case with my employer. Caroline has always helped me to put things in perspective and showed me different scenarios ultimately to help me taking the right decision. She was very professional and always available when I needed, and at the same time also emphatic which I found also really important to establish a strong relationship. Will definitely recommend!

    I had Mel Chin helping me with a settlement and she was very professional and reliable throughout my case. Mel provided me with a good understanding of what was happening and gave suggestions on routes I could take. My case was resolved and closed promptly although the opposing side were very difficult to deal with. A very big thank you to Mel and Chris.

    My first ever experience needing the services of a solicitor; cannot speak highly enough of Mel and Chris’s personable, reassuring and straight to the point advice in dealing with my settlement agreement. They put me at ease during an extremely stressful time. I am equally as happy with the outcome, as l am their professional services.

    Very happy with the detailed advice provided from Redmans. They also helped me to secure a higher settlement than originally offered by my employer and were extremely diligent. I first spoke with Chris at relatively short notice and then Sacha dealt with my case. Would definitely recommend and use again in the future if needed.

    My case was handled by Sacha who was very thorough and helped me to achieve a good outcome with my employer. Sacha was very personal, professional and helped me during quite a stressful time, so I am hugely grateful to her and to Redmans. This was my first time engaging with a law firm so I wasn't sure what to expect but I can definitely say that it was a good experience overall and I ended up better off due to having the help of an experienced and proactive solicitor on my side.

    So grateful that I contacted Redmans to deal with my Redundancy Agreement. Everything from the initial call to the completion of the matter was professional, efficient and effective. I was listened to, had everything explained simply and kept informed of every step. I received super advice and the costs were very competitive. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking similar help. First class service - thank you
