Ombudsman decision data

We publish this data to maintain transparency around our decision making and to encourage and support improved complaints handling by service providers.

The table below includes data covering the period 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016.

The table shows:

  • - The name of each firm or lawyer where an ombudsman's decision has been made
  • - The total number of decisions made in relation to each firm or lawyer
  • - The ombudsman remedy required
  • - With effect from 1 April 2016 our data will indicate if the ombudsman has found poor service or not when making their decision.
Information about each ombudsman remedy and the complaint reason can be found by clicking on the relevant name.

Please note: in cases where there is no ombudsman remedy required this indicates that the ombudsman was satisfied that the customer service provided was adequate and/or that any remedy offered by the service provider was reasonable.

To fully understand this data in context you will need to find out how many cases the firm or lawyer deals with each year. This information is not held by the Legal Ombudsman.
