Ombudsman’s Office for financial service providers

Expensive, time-consuming legal proceedings, which often take years, can thus be avoided.The ombudsman is not a state court. Rather, he promotes dialogue between the parties. Instead of a judgement, he mediates a negotiated solution for the parties in dispute. This is not binding, and the parties are free to decide whether to follow the ombudsman’s suggestion or take other, e.g. legal, steps. However, experience has shown that negotiated solutions of the Ombudsman are generally accepted thanks to his professional competence.
