However if you require our invoices, this letter or any other documents that we may send to you in an alternative format, (for example in hard copy or in a larger font), then please let me know.
Furthermore, if at any time you are unhappy with any aspect of our handling of your case, please do not hesitate to raise this with the fee earner dealing with your matter. If that fee earner us unable to resolve matters to your satisfaction then you should contact Muctar Johal, who is the Client Service Partner, whose telephone number is 01332 225225.

If you are not satisfied with our handling of your complaint you may ask the Legal Ombudsman at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ to consider the complaint. 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 six years of the act or omission about which you are complaining (or if outside of this period, within three years of when you should reasonably have been aware of it).
