The Leeds law firm, Ison Harrison, have 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 gives 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 on-site visits from an experienced, trained Lexcel assessor.

Jonathan Wearing, Managing Partner said: “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 interest 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.”

Andrew Caplen, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, said: “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is no mean feat. There are many faces of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including client care. A commitment to customer service in today’s evermore competitive legal services marketplace is vital.”

This practice management standard has also gone international, with firms in Scotland, the Middle East and the Republic of Ireland having gained accreditation.
