Recovery Assist LLP – Complaints Policy

We aim to provide you with the best possible service and to achieve the best outcome for your legal dispute. If things go wrong along the way,  tell us and we will do our best to resolve the problem. That way, we question what we do and how we do it and this improves our high standards.

If you have a complaint, you are entitled to complain. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case and you will not be charged for any work we do in dealing with the complaint.

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, then you can read our full complaints procedure below.

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 our final response to your complaint


  • No more than one year from the date of the act or omission being complained about; or
  • No more than one year from the date when you should reasonably have known that there was cause for complaint.


If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
