Ringrose Law has announced it has received LEXCEL accreditation from the Law Society for the fourteenth year running, the longest achieving LEXCEL firm in the county.
Ringrose Law was the first firm in Lincolnshire to accomplish this prestigious accreditation. The Lexcel award confirms that Ringrose Law offers ‘Excellence in legal practice management and client care’.
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 to customers that a practice meets high client care and business management standards.
The annual accreditation involves a yearly rigorous inspection and assessment from an independent LEXCEL assessor appointed by an independent assessment body, which includes reviewing internal plans, policies, and procedures to check they are up to date and in effective operation, plus interviewing staff and understanding the overall company performance.
Paul Cooper, Senior Partner at Ringrose Law said: “We are very proud to have achieved Lexcel for the fourteenth consecutive year.
“2018 was a fantastic year for the firm as we relaunched our Commercial Department with three new appointments into the team. We also promoted 13 members of staff to Associate and Senior Associate level and we look forward to developing our strategic goals even further going into 2019, with further announcements to follow in the Spring.”
Debbie Fowler, Lexcel Consultant added: “The Lexcel standard requires that there is supervision of all legal work undertaken by a suitably qualified person, and internal audits are undertaken to assess legal advice given and management of work. This is to ensure that clients receive the best service possible.
“The firm has effective policies and procedures in place and staff training is provided to safeguard client data and I find this particularly reassuring.”
