To gain and retain Lexcel accreditation, a practice must undergo a rigorous initial assessment and then an annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an experienced, trained Lexcel assessor.
Julia Brown, Practice Manager at rhw solicitors LLP said:
“We are delighted to have been re-awarded the coveted Lexcel mark but it is our clients and staff who are the main beneficiaries. It confirms 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. rhw is one of a small number of legal practices in Guildford to have received Lexcel accreditation”
Lexcel is developed specifically for the legal profession. It is an optional, recognised accreditation scheme for law firms and in-house legal departments which gives assurance that a practice meets high client care and business management standards.
