As part of the continuing process to improve client service, the CSO surveys a cross-section of clients every 12 months. In addition we randomly survey a range of completed matters.  This feedback is critical in assisting us to better understand issues important to our clients and ensuring we are meeting their expectations.

The service areas currently surveyed include:

  • understanding client priorities
  • responsiveness: response time to establish initial contact and length of time to return phone calls
  • access: availability and ease of contacting solicitors
  • reliability: meeting deadlines and notice of pending dates
  • competency
  • communication: reports on progress and usefulness of matter summary reports
  • accuracy
  • outcomes achieved
  • fees/charges.

If you would like to provide general feedback, please email with your comments.

Continuous improvement in client service levels is of the utmost importance to the CSO. Clients who have any issues or concerns in this regard, should feel free to contact the Practice Group Director concerned, or the Practice Manager.​​
