Lexcel enables practices to develop consistent operational efficiencies and client services, manage risk effectively, reduce costs and promote profitability. It achieves this by providing a flexible and supportive management framework for legal firms to adhere to.
The accreditation provides a benchmark standard; the firms achieving it have proven that they have the flexibility to implement appropriate circumstantial procedures.
There are seven areas that Lexcel assesses:
- Structure and strategy
- Financial management
- Information management
- People management
- Risk management
- Client care
- File and case management
Madeline Seibert, Partner of Attwaters Jameson Hill, said “I am very pleased to report that we have been recommended for certification against the Lexcel standard.
“We had 28 areas of good practice highlighted by the assessor, including our: management processes, documented corporate and social responsibility policy, well documented information management and security arrangements, as well as commitment to continuing to offer professional development opportunities to a wide range of staff, at all offices.
“We were complemented on our ‘robust approach to risk and genuine desire to raise the profile and embed revised risk management arrangements across the firm’“.
