Peter Edwards Law based in Hoylake has, once again, secured the national Law Society’s law management quality mark, Lexcel.
Lexcel is developed specifically for the legal profession. It is an optional, recognised accreditation scheme for law firms and in-house legal departments which give assurance that a practice meets high client care and business management standards.
To gain and retain Lexcel accreditation, practice must undergo a rigorous initial then annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an experienced, trained Lexcel assessor.
Carolyn Lindsay, Practice Manager, said: “While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our clients and staff who are the main beneficiaries. They can be assured that the way we manage the practice has their interests at heart and runs efficiently. There is a lot of choice in the legal services market, but being Lexcel accredited demonstrates our commitment to client care and best practice.”
Nicholas Fluck, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, said:
“The Lexcel practice management scheme continues to go from strength to strength assisting firms and in-house legal departments of all sizes to differentiate themselves in a competitive and crowded marketplace.
“Lexcel accreditation gives clients assurance that a practice meets the highest client care and business management standards.”
Peter Edwards Law joins more than 1400 other legal practices in England & Wales with Lexcel accreditation. The practice management accolade has also gone international, with firms in Scotland, the Middle East, Poland and the Republic of Ireland having gained accreditation.
