When buying legal advice for a personal matter or on behalf of a business, it can be difficult to choose between the wide range of organisations on offer.
Whether it is a law firm, bank or supermarket, you want to be able to judge the overall service you're likely to receive from a provider of legal services - both the technical quality of legal advice and quality of client service.
Lexcel is the Law Society's quality mark for excellence in legal practice management and client care.
Designed especially for providers of legal services, Lexcel sets out required rules and guidelines to help raise standards and ensure consistency in the technical quality of legal advice offered and levels of client service.
In England and Wales, Lexcel is only available to legal providers that are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Law firms based overseas can also be accredited against the Lexcel International Standard.
