Hi, Tony,

Can I use article "the" before the possessive pronoun e.g. Jack Smith's complaints and recommendations.

Example: Please find attached my response in relation to the Jack Smith's complaints and recommendations.

Can I use the article "the" before Jack Smith's?

No. You should only use "the" if the noun in the genitive case, that is, the noun corresponding to the one who makes the complaints and recommendations, takes an article, for example:

- the customer's complaints and recommendations ⇒ the complaints and recommendations of the customer
