At Pragmatism (UK) Ltd we constantly strive to deliver the best quality service possible to our clients.
Throughout our working relationship with clients we very much welcome ongoing feedback regarding what’s going well and areas where we could improve.
We see constructive criticism as a good thing – both for us as an organisation and for our current and prospective clients. Part of our ethos is establishing root cause for our clients and this applies equally for our business.
To provide us with feedback talk to us directly or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to confirm receipt.
Where feedback is positive we will strive to ensure that we are maximising that area of service throughout our business. Where the feedback is suggesting areas for improvement this will be referred to our Director (Peter Colby) who will contact you personally to explore ways to improve the service for you in the short term and for you and other clients in the medium term.
Should any client feel that the service they have received falls below the expected standards and we have failed to rectify the issue we operate the following formal complaints procedure.
Where timescales are defined within this procedure they are maximum durations and we will always strive to fulfil the respective step as soon as is possible.
Please note that step 9 of this procedure only applies to mediations where a formal mediation agreement has been signed by yourself and a Pragmatism (UK) Ltd appointed Mediator.
1. You should send an email to email@example.com entering “Formal Complaint” in the subject area. In order to deal with your complaint as swiftly as possible your email should provide the following:-
- A brief description of the issue.

- If appropriate, any potential resolution to the issue that you can foresee.
