Never before, in the legal profession, have the issues of client care and client complaints assumed such a high profile as it does at present. It is, therefore, surprising that, at a time when the subject is receiving constant publicity and the profession are being continually urged to become ever more client, or customer, focused, there is no text on those subjects to which a solicitor can turn for guidance. This publication seeks to remedy the defect.

The new edition covers recent reforms to the system, including the new complaints authority, as well as a thorough review of the text.
