In addition you may also have the right to make a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman and/or by applying to the Court for an assessment of the bill under Part III of the Solicitors Act 1974.
Alternatively you may be entitled to have the bill reviewed by the Court within 3 months of delivery of the bill – this is called an assessment.
