Hello I will assist you today.

Very sorry to hear this has happened.

Your first course of action is to raise the matter with the law firm concerned and get an explanation as to what happened. Was it sent to the wrong address, or did the post office deliver it to the wrong address.

Your second course of action can be a formal complaint to the Solicitors Regulation Authority. (SRA). I have attached a direct link below to them.
