Greenberg Traurig, LLP (London) - Complaints Handling Protocol
This document sets out the complaints handling protocol of Greenberg Traurig, LLP (London) (“GT, London”).
If you have any complaints about any aspect of our service, the level of our fees, or the way in which we have dealt with any job (whether or not you are the client), in the first instance, please contact either the Shareholder supervising the matter or our Managing Shareholder, Fiona Adams, by telephone, e-mail, fax or post.
GT, London treats complaints very seriously and makes every effort to deal with them promptly and effectively. Once notified of your complaint, we shall investigate it and respond in full as soon as possible. Please help us to carry out a fair investigation by providing us with all the information you think is relevant to the complaint.
Your complaint will in the first instance be handled by the Shareholder supervising the matter or, if you prefer or if we think it appropriate in all the circumstances, our Managing Shareholder, Fiona Adams, although they may in their discretion appoint another senior Shareholder to conduct the complaint procedure on their behalf.
We aim to acknowledge your complaint within three working days from the date of receipt and send an initial written response within 10 working days. If a more detailed substantive response is required, we will aim to send this to you within 20 working days. If we cannot reply to you within 20 working days, we shall inform you as to the reason why, and let you know when we expect to reply in full.
We shall not make any charge to you for handling or investigating your complaint.
If you are not satisfied that we have resolved your complaint in this way, we will offer you the chance of an internal review. This will be handled by a person different from the person who first dealt with your complaint and will usually be our Managing Shareholder, Fiona Adams, or other senior Shareholder.
We shall try to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible and in any event within eight weeks from first notification of the complaint. If your complaint is upheld, in whole or in part, we shall notify you of the remedy we consider appropriate. This will depend on all the circumstances of the case but might include, for example, one or more of an explanation of what went wrong, an apology, or an adjustment of fees.
If you do not feel that we have responded to your complaint within a reasonable time, or you are not satisfied with the response, the Legal Ombudsman has formal powers to resolve complaints against lawyers. The Legal Ombudsman can be contacted as follows:
- (by e-mail) at firstname.lastname@example.org;
- (by regular mail) at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ United Kingdom
- (by telephone) on 0300 555 0333; or
- (by telephone from overseas) on +44 121 245 3050.
The deadline for bringing a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman's attention is 6 months from the date on which you receive from us the final response regarding the complaint.
