Ashurst is committed to the efficient delivery of outstanding service specific to our clients' needs. However, if at any point a client becomes unhappy with any aspect of our service, or our charges, then it should contact the relevant matter partner or the relationship partner immediately so that we can discuss the concern and do our best to resolve the issue. If, for whatever reason, this is not appropriate you may speak to the head of our relevant department or office or to Angela Pearson, General Counsel.

If a client is unable to resolve any concerns through these channels and wishes to make a formal complaint it may request Angela Pearson to initiate our Client Complaints Procedure. This will involve a proper investigation of the circumstances leading to the complaint within an appropriate timescale which will be notified to you.

In the UK, the Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our conduct. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing client money or treating people unfairly because of their age, a disability or other characteristic. You can raise any such concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

If we are unable to resolve any concerns or complaints you may be entitled to refer the matter to the relevant regulator which, in the case of services provided by English solicitors, is the Legal Ombudsman, further information about which can be obtained from www.legalombudsman.org.uk. Normally you would need to contact the Ombudsman within six months of our final response to your complaint and (i) no more than six years from the date of act/omission, or (ii) no more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint. You can contact the Legal Ombudsman by telephone on 0300 555 0333, by email at enquiries@legalombudsman.org.uk or by post at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton WV1 9WJ.

If the complaint relates to our charges, you may be entitled to apply to the court for an assessment of the bill under Part III of the Solicitors Act 1974 in which case the Legal Ombudsman may not consider your complaint. If all or a part of a bill remains unpaid we may be entitled to charge interest.
