We are obliged on request to provide information on the professional rules which are applicable to us and how to access them.

Information about dispute resolution:
Our letter of appointment or legal services agreement sets out the process of raising comments or complaints with us. In the event that the matter is not resolved, then the matter may be referred to The Scottish Legal Complaints Commission, The Stamp Office, 10-14 Waterloo Place, Edinburgh EH1 3EG (Tel : 0131 528 5111).
The Scottish Legal Complaints Commission acts as the gateway for all complaints. It also decides whether complaints are about a service provided by a solicitor (which are dealt with by the Commission) or about a solicitor’s conduct (which are referred to the Law Society of Scotland for investigation). More information regarding this is available on the Law Society of Scotland’s website (www.lawscot.org.uk).
