This accreditation, which is optional and not compulsory, was secured after a rigorous assessment which included background checks and an on site visit from an experienced, trained assessor.

Lexcel assessment includes confirming that the firm meets standards set for client care and management standards for efficient running of the practice to maintain client care.

The partners at QS Lawson and Thompson confirmed in a joint statement that the accolade was another demonstration of their commitment to client care and shaping the practice to meet client needs.  “It’s important that we meet and excel our client’s needs and inspire confidence in them and our staff.  This accreditation is independent evidence that our efforts to do that are being met.  We will now seek to build on them going forward and continue to offer first class legal services to the communities we serve in South East Northumberland”.
