The management of complaints can be a time consuming task that is unwelcome At The Strategic Partner we offer firms a complaint management service where we will investigate and manage complaints on behalf of the firm including drafting a reply to the client or if needed, The Legal Ombudsman.
Effective management of complaints will protect the firm, its reputation, and the risk of regulatory interaction.
As and when complaints arise we will obtain details from the firm and working on their behalf engage with those involved, the client, fee earner(s) and external parties to establish the root cause of the complaint and whether it is justified or not. We will advise and guide the firm on how to resolve the compliant without causing further escalation and what action the firm should take if needed.
We will work in tandem with the firm ensuring the firm is protected at all times and taking action that is both justified and proportionate.
