Representing the People of Hull for more than 40 years
Welcome To Andrew Kingston & Co. Solicitors. The firm was formed in September 2004, but Andrew Kingston-Splatt LLB, the Principal of Andrew Kingston & Co. Solicitors, has practiced as a Solicitor in Hull since December 1978. For the majority of that time, he has specialised particularly in Civil and Commercial Litigation, and Debt Recovery work. Andrew Kingston & Co. therefore has a wealth of experience in dealing with such cases, and is able to use that experience for the benefit of its clients, to achieve the best possible results on their behalf.
Building upon its established reputation for dispute resolution, Andrew Kingston & Co. also undertakes some employment work. In particular, we frequently provide advice to employees in relation to Settlement Agreements offered by their employers.
The firm also deals with a substantial amount of Residential Conveyancing. We carry out the preparation of Wills, and work relating to Probate and the Administration of Estates, the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney, and applications to the Court of Protection.
Our offices are at 7-8 Whitefriargate, Hull, HU1 2ER. Please note that this is our only address and we have no connection with any other firm operating under a similar name, in Hull or elsewhere.

Client care and complaints handling
We would hope that our clients will not have reason to complain, but If you are not happy about any aspect of the service you have received or about our charges, then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem. In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your file to discuss your concerns. If you wish to make a formal complaint, please write to Mr A Kingston by e-mail to email@example.com or by post to our offices. Our Complaints Procedure can be seen here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case. If you are not happy with our final written response to your complaint, you are entitled to refer the complaint to the Legal Ombudsman.
If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them. The Legal Ombudsman can be contacted at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV1 9WJ, or call 0300 555 0333 (weekdays 9.00am to 5.00pm), or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Ombudsman will not usually accept a complaint unless it has first been made to us and not resolved within 8 weeks, except in the circumstances set out in Chapter 4 of their Scheme Rules, which can be read at www.legalombudsman.org.uk. You must refer your concerns to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of our final response to you. However, please note that from 1st April 2023 the Legal Ombudsman expects complaints to be made to them within a year of the date of the act or omission about which you are concerned or within a year of you realising there was a concern.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic.
