Close Thornton secures top accolade from national Law Society.

We are proud to announce that we have recently had our accreditation of the national Law Society’s legal practice in quality mark, Lexcel re-awarded.

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 then retain Lexcel accreditation, a practice must undergo a rigorous initial and then annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an independent and experienced trained Lexcel assessor.

Close Thornton was first awarded Lexcel accreditation in September 2003, and is proud to have been awarded accreditation, every year since.

Shaun Burke, Partner said: While we are proud to have maintained our Lexcel accreditation, it is our clients and staff 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”.
