A specialist Lancashire law firm has been re-accredited by the industry standards body for best practice in the legal sector.
Adkirk Law, with its headquarters in Preston, has met the Law Society’s standard for excellence in practice management and client care under the Lexcel accreditation following a rigorous assessment process.
Lexcel provides a flexible framework to support practices in developing consistent operational efficiencies and maintaining a competitive edge in an increasingly diverse market.
The accreditation defines quality management procedures in seven areas: structure and strategy, financial management, information management, people management, risk management, client care and file and case management.
Rachel Adamson, head of fraud and regulatory at Adkirk Law, said: “The Lexcel standard is a real mark of quality in our sector, demonstrating excellence in the eyes of the Law Society and reflecting our commitment towards best practice and high standards. It’s something which is reassessed annually to ensure standards and compliance are maintained so it’s pleasing to be able to consistently reach this benchmark.
“With all the challenges and uncertainty this year has presented, it’s more important than ever that clients can be assured we are delivering excellence and operating in their best interests at the highest levels, across all aspects of the firm.”
Adkirk Law offers a niche practice with expertise in regulatory law, including serious fraud, regulation and police misconduct, and residential conveyancing.
