Fraud alert

There have been a growing number of scams where the name of a law firm or the names of its staff members are used by fraudsters in scam communications often requesting a transfer of funds or seeking disclosure of confidential information.

If you receive any communication purportedly from us and you are concerned about whether it is genuine, please contact us immediately.

In particular, always verify bank details before transferring any funds. If you receive an email that purports to come from us with different bank details or a change to payment details, do not transfer any funds to the account stated. Please contact us immediately (on the telephone number you regularly use) to verify the details and check they are genuine. We will not accept responsibility if you transfer money to an incorrect bank account. Any transfer of funds will be entirely at your own risk.

Clients of the firm can request a copy of the firm’s complaints procedure. Our complaints handling partner can be contacted by emailing: complaints@danielcliffordlaw.co.uk If we cannot resolve a complaint, it can be referred to the Legal Ombudsman.

Pursuant to the EU Regulation on Consumer Online Dispute Resolution, we are required to provide a link to the EU Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform which has been set up to assist with the resolution of complaints and contractual disputes arising from online transactions (which includes contracts entered into by electronic means). The ODR service can be accessed at http://ec.europa.eu/odr and the firm’s contact is our complaints handling partner whose email address is set out above.

Financial services

We are not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (“FSMA”), but we are able, in certain circumstances, to offer a limited range of investment services to the client because we are regulated by the SRA. We can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services we have been engaged to provide.

If you have any problem with the service we have provided for you then please let us know. We will try to resolve any problem quickly and operate an internal complaints handling system to help us to resolve the problem between ourselves. If for any reason we are unable to resolve the problem between us, then we are regulated by the SRA and complaints and redress mechanisms are provided through the SRA and the Legal Ombudsman.

The Law Society is a designated professional body for the purposes of the FSMA but responsibility for regulation and complaints handling has been separated from the Law Society’s representative functions. The SRA is the independent regulatory body of the Law Society and the Legal Ombudsman is the independent complaints handling body of the Law Society.

Insurance distribution

We are not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). However, we are included on the register maintained by the FCA so that we can carry on insurance distribution activity, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts. This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by the SRA. The register can be accessed via the FCA’s website at www.fca.org.uk/firms/financial-services-register
