Ombudsman Services provides consumer dispute resolution services for major industries, including the Communications, Energy, Property and Copyright Licensing sectors. Last year Ombudsman Services resolved over 18,000 complaints and handled around 203,000 queries via the post (38%) and telephone (62%).

By deploying the Peppermint Platform , Ombudsman Services can deliver online services 365 days a year, making accessibility to the service easier and faster for consumers. Ombudsman Services provides self-assessment facilities and has expanded customer service channels to include secure service portals and text messaging. The primary benefit has been to improve the case management service by making it quicker and more transparent; however the Peppermint Platform has also reduced costs and improve operational efficiency.

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
