If you have any complaint, including a complaint about your bill, you should raise it in the first instance with Benoît Keane.  If that is felt to be inappropriate, or if you feel that the response is inadequate, you may ask the Barreau de Bruxelles – Ordre Français to resolve your complaint.  Alternatively, you can contact the Legal Ombudsman for Solicitors of England & Wales to assist you.  Normally you would need to contact the Legal Ombudsman within six months of the final response to your complaint.  You can do so by email at enquiries@legalombudsman.org.uk or by post at PO Box 15870, Birmingham B30 9EB, United Kingdom.  These options are without prejudice to any other avenues you may wish to avail of with the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Barreau de Bruxelles – Ordre Français.
