Complaints

At 1 High Pavement we strive to provide an excellent service but in the event that our service falls short of expectations all complaints must be lodged with the Senior Clerk at 1 High Pavement. Chambers recognises that it is important to deal with any complaints in a professional and sensitive manner.
Complaints will be acknowledged within 72 hours of their receipt and will be dealt with according to Chambers’ Policies and Procedures.
