The Legal Ombudsman

A significant part of my work involves cases between solicitors and their former clients arising from disputes about fees.

An alternative to action for professional negligence, or an application for a solicitor-own client detailed assessment in the Senior Courts Costs Office or a District Registry, is a complaint by an aggrieved individual or small business client to the Legal Ombudsman.

I can advise upon and formulate either a complaint or a response to a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman.

I am familiar with principles of public law, having undertaken my first judicial review case in 1999 and can provide legal advice and representation, in respect of any potential judicial review claim against a decision of the Legal Ombudsman.
