Kuits awarded top Law Society accolade for sixth year running02 Nov 2015
Manchester-based commercial law firm Kuits has secured the national Law Society’s legal practice quality mark, Lexcel, for the sixth successive year.
Lexcel is a national standard, designed to recognise high standards of client care and business management in the legal profession. A practice must undergo a rigorous application and assessment process to gain and retain the accreditation, alongside background checks and an on-site visit from an independent Lexcel assessor.
Entrants are judged across several areas, including structure and strategy, financial management, information management, people management, risk management, client care, and file and case management.
Steve Eccleston, managing partner at Kuits, commented: “To secure the Lexcel accreditation for the sixth consecutive year fairly reflects the commitment of all our people to best practice across the business.
“Ensuring we continually meet the highest of standards is hugely important to our firm and we’re proud to be recognised once again for embedding this into our culture.”
Jonathan Smithers, president of the Law Society of England and Wales, added: “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is a considerable feat. There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including excellence in client care. By undergoing the rigorous application and assessment process, practices can show the positive steps that they are taking to help clients in the increasingly diverse and complicated legal services market.”
