The Legal Ombudsman may be able to help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. The Legal Ombudsman deals with complaints from:
- micro-enterprises (broadly businesses or enterprises with fewer than ten employees and turnover or assets not exceeding €2m)
- charities, clubs, associations or organisations with less than £1m net annual income
- trustees of a trust valued at less than £1m
- personal representatives or beneficiaries of the estate of an individual who had not complained to the Legal Ombudsman before their death
If the Legal Ombudsman accepts your complaint for investigation it will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your matter.
Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
- within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint
- no more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
- no more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
