What is a legal service provider?

We can look into complaints about all sorts of regulated legal service providers: solicitors, barristers, licensed conveyancers, cost lawyers, legal executives, notaries, patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys, law firms and companies providing legal services, such as some accountants. Regulated legal service providers should tell you about the Legal Ombudsman, which is one way to tell if their service can be investigated by us.
