Legal Ombudsman

If you are still not satisfied with our response or handling of your complaint, then you can contact the Legal Ombudsman regarding your complaint.

The Legal Ombudsman is an independent body established by the Office for Legal Complaints under the Legal Services Act 2007 to deal with complaints against Solicitors.

The purpose of the Legal Ombudsman is to resolve disputes over service in an efficient and informal way by seeking consensus, where possible, between a complainant and the legal service provider.

Ordinarily, you cannot use the Legal Ombudsman unless you have first attempted to resolve your complaint using our internal Complaints Handling Procedure, but you will be able to contact the Legal Ombudsman if:

  • The complaint has not been resolved to your satisfaction within eight weeks of first making the complaint to us; or
  • The Legal Ombudsman decides that there are exceptional reasons why the Legal Ombudsman should consider your complaint sooner, or without you having to use our internal Complaints Handling Procedure first; or
  • The Legal Ombudsman considers that your complaint cannot be resolved using our internal Complaints Handling Procedure because the relationship between yourself and Robert Bingham Limited has broken down irretrievably.

If you wish to make a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman, you must also be one of the following:

  • An individual,
  • A micro-enterprise (defined as having fewer than 10 employees and an annual turnover or balance sheet below £2 million),
  • A charity (provided annual income net of tax is below £1 million),
  • A club, association or organisation (provided annual income net of tax is below £ 1 million),
  • A trustee of a trust (with a net asset value less than £1 million); or
  • A personal representative or the residuary beneficiaries of an estate where a person with a complaint died before referring it to the Legal Ombudsman.
