Client care terms
All Solicitors must attempt to resolve concerns that may arise with their services and charges including the standard of client and case care as well as their bills. It is important to us that any problem, concern or complaint raised by a client is resolved without delay.
The details of the person (case worker) conducting your case will be confirmed within the letter confirming the terms upon which we act on your behalf. The Solicitors Regulation Authority requires a supervisor/principal to be allocated to each case. Unless otherwise notified Andrew Joannides is the principal in all cases.
Any queries or concerns about our work or charges should be raised with the case worker or if you would prefer not to speak to the case worker, please contact the case supervisor. In the event matters can not be resolved please write to the Client Care Partner Mr Andrew Joannides at First Floor 11-19 Park Road London N8 8TE. The letter should contain as much detail regarding the complaint as possible together with copies of any relevant documents. Thereafter Mr Joannides will investigate the complaint and report the outcome together with any actions to remedy the problem.
