About Edward Marshall
Our goal is to work collaboratively with our clients, providing comprehensive advisory services for enforcement of their legal rights and development of their businesses in United Kingdom and overseas. Our commitment is to assist our clients on the basis of in-depth knowledge of their field activities, in addition to legal requirements relating to their matters. Advisors at Edward Marshall Solicitors have experience in multiple enterprises relating to various practice areas and thus making them the best in their relevant fields. We have provided advisory services to clients and obtained positive results in a large number of immigration matters, corporate disputes, employment proceedings, family law and property matters. Edward Marshall Solicitors maintains outstanding professional relationships with local authorities and government agencies in the country, as well as with some of the international institutions which helps us deal with our clients’ matters associated with such offices much expeditiously.
At Edward Marshall Solicitors we strive to give our clients a satisfactory service. However, in the unlikely event you have any complaints about the service you have received we have the following procedures in place.
For minor complaints we would suggest you complete our Client Care Questionnaire. Your complaint will be handled immediately by the person in charge of your service. Should you remain unsatisfied you may request that the matter be referred to the Partner in charge of the relevant office and, hence, move to Formal Stage 1.
For the avoidance of any doubt or future disputes it is required the complaint is put in writing to the Partner in charge of the relevant office who will investigate the matter and respond to you as quickly as possible. Should at that stage you remain unsatisfied, you may request that the matter be referred to the Partner in charge of another office for independent review and handling, in accordance with Formal Stage 2.
The Partner in charge of the chosen office will review the complaint independently and respond to you as quickly as possible, which may take a little longer than in stage 1. If at that stage the client remains unsatisfied, then they should refer the matter to the LCS (Legal Complaints Service).
Under formal Stage 1 and/or Formal Stage 2 we will use every endevour to respond to you within 7 days. If for any reason we are unable to do so we will write to tell you why and advise you of a revised timing.
If you are not satisfied with our handling of your complaint you can ask the Legal Ombudsman (address PO Box 15870, Birmingham, B30 9EB, website www.legalombudsman.org.uk, telephone 0300 555 0333) to consider the complaint. Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint.
