LEXCEL is the Law Society’s legal practice quality mark for client care, compliance and practice management for law firms and in-house legal departments. The LEXCEL framework is based on the following seven key quality areas:
1. Structures and strategy
2. Financial management
3. Information management
4. People management
5. Risk management
6. Client care
7. File and case management
Achieving LEXCEL means a firm is recognised as offering excellent client service and managing risk effectively which can set your firm apart within a competitive market. A LEXCEL quality mark can help your firm prove authority, expertise, and competence in your practice.
It is also accepted by the Legal Aid Agency and the Money Advice Service as an alternative to the Specialist Quality Mark (“SQM”) accreditation. – find out about our SQM accreditation pre audit services

The Strategic Partner works with legal service providers of all sizes to prepare for the LEXCEL assessments including the updating of processes and systems to ensure the firm is responding to the changing needs of the industry and of LEXCEL. Seeking specialist advice is essential to ensure the application process runs as effectively as possible.
