CMC firm named by Legal Ombudsman in the public interest

We’ve published details of a series of decisions relating to JAS Financial Advisory Services Ltd (JAS) in line with our Category 1 Publishing Policy and Criteria. Our Board has decided to highlight its concerns about the company after considering 92 complaints about JAS to our scheme between 1 January and 30 June 2016, which were accepted for investigation.

The Legal Services Act 2007 empowers the Office for Legal Complaints (OLC) Board to publish details of lawyers or claims management companies involved in complaints. The OLC may decide to exercise this power where an ombudsman’s decision(s) reveals a trend or set of individual circumstances that indicate it is in the public interest to do so.
