Complaints Handling Procedures

The JHWalter complaint handling procedure is designed to ensure that complaints are properly investigated and are given careful and fair consideration.

We have appointed Ian Walter to deal with complaints. If you have a question, or if you would like to make a complaint, please don’t hesitate to contact him:

Ian H Walter – Senior Partner,
JHWalter LLP, 1 Mint Lane, LINCOLN LN1 1UD
Tel: 01522 526526 | Email Ian Walter

If you make your complaint verbally – whether face-to-face or over the phone – please also make it in writing, addressed to Ian Walter above. This is to ensure that we fully understand exactly what your complaint is and have a written record of it.

Once we have received your written summary of the complaint, we will contact you in writing within 7 days to acknowledge receipt of your complaint. 

We will consider your complaint as quickly as possible. We will provide you with a full response or, if that is not possible, an update on what is happening with your complaint, within 28 days of receiving the written summary of your complaint. 

If we cannot agree on how to resolve the complaint then you will have the opportunity to take your complaint to the final stage of our complaints handling procedure.  The final stage will depend on who you are and the type of work we did for you:
