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, the practice must undergo a rigorous initial then annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an independent experienced trained Lexcel assessor.
Christopher Houghton, Managing Director said: “While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our clients 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.”
Jonathan Smithers, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, said “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is a considerable feat. There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including excellence in client care. A real commitment to customer service in today’s evermore competitive legal services market is vital.
"The scheme is a beacon of quality to clients and potential clients alike.”
Only 15% of all solicitors in England and Wales hold the accreditation and we are pleased that Moore & Tibbits have retained their Lexcel accreditation for the last 9 years.
