We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem. In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns, and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, click here to read our full complaints procedure. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. You can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
What To Do if We Cannot Resolve Your Complaint
The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently, and it will not affect how we handle your case. 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 and
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.
If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
Pursuant to the Solicitors Regulation Authority Transparency Rules, solicitors in England & Wales must provide cost information on their website in regard to certain legal services if they publish as part of their usual business that they provide those legal services to members of the public and small businesses. Except in regard to employment law matters, Steptoe’s legal services are undertaken for medium and large businesses, and our publicity material is consistent with that fact. Therefore, the Transparency Rules do not apply to the vast majority of Steptoe’s work for clients. The application of the Transparency Rules to Steptoe’s Employment Practice can be found here. In any event, our terms of engagement for all of our clients (regardless of size) state the basis on which we charge for all of our services.
