We will keep you informed of progress and aim to send you our final response to your complaint within eight weeks of the date you originally complained to us. In many cases we will do this a lot quicker. If we cannot, we will write to you explaining why we have not completed our investigations and telling you when we will have done so.

Employing a third-party complaint handling firm or a solicitor or financial adviser does not affect how we review your complaint. However, please be aware that;

  1. Lancashire Law does not charge you to investigate your complaint

  2. Lancashire Law will not be liable for any costs incurred if you decide to employ a third party to handle your complaint during this review

  3. Lancashire Law in general will only make payment directly to you (the client) if your complaint is upheld and redress is due
