Professional indemnity insurance
Our compulsory professional indemnity insurance is with Zurich Insurance Plc of 8th Floor, 70 Mark Lane, London, EC3R 7NQ. For further information about this insurance, please contact our Managing Partner.

Financial services
We are not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) but because we are members of the Law Society which is a designated professional body for the purposes of FSMA we are able to provide to our clients a limited range of investment services if they are incidental to our provision of legal services.

Town Legal LLP is included on the register maintained by the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity. Broadly this is advising on, selling and administering insurance contracts. The FCA register is available at www.fca.org.uk. This part of our business is regulated by the SRA.

The SRA is the independent regulatory arm of the Law Society. The Legal Ombudsman is an independent body established to deal with complaints which cannot be resolved through a firm’s internal procedures. Access to the Legal Ombudsman is subject to certain eligibility criteria. If you are not satisfied with any insurance advice we provide, you may, subject to your position with regard to the eligibility criteria in the case of the Legal Ombudsman, raise your concerns with either of those bodies.

Client satisfaction
We aim to provide high quality legal advice and client care. If you are concerned about any aspect of our services or our bills, please speak to the partner responsible for the matter to which your concerns relate, or to another partner if you consider that more appropriate. If this does not resolve your concerns and you wish to make a formal complaint, please contact the Managing Partner to obtain a copy of the procedures which we will follow to resolve your complaint.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of our complaints procedure, you may be able to ask the Legal Ombudsman to consider your complaint. You can contact the Legal Ombudsman by email enquiries@legalombudsman.co.uk, telephone 0300 555 0333 or by post PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ. Access to the Legal Ombudsman is subject to eligibility criteria and time limits which are explained in our complaints policy.

If your concern relates to one of our bills, you may also have the right to apply to court for an assessment of the bill under Part lll Solicitors Act 1974. You should be aware though that the Legal Ombudsman may not consider your complaint if you make an application to court.

However, no sum in lieu of interest will be paid if the total sum in lieu of interest is less than £50.
