Kuits retains Law Society quality standard for eighth consecutive year26 Sep 2018
Kuits has achieved the Lexcel award, the Law Society’s quality mark for legal practices, for the eighth year in a row.
Recognising best practice in business management and client care, Lexcel is a national accolade within the legal profession.
In order to gain and retain the accreditation, firms must undergo background checks, complete a thorough application and assessment process, and receive an on-site visit from an independent Lexcel assessor.
Applicants are judged across areas including financial management, information management, structure and strategy, risk management, client care, file and case management, and people management.
Kuits operations manager Jackie Wright oversaw the process and has done so each year since the firm first applied to be examined for the standard.
Robert Levy, executive partner at Kuits, said: “As a firm which places emphasis and importance on meeting the highest of standards and best practices, being awarded the Lexcel accreditation for the eighth consecutive year after a comprehensive examination is something we are delighted to achieve.”
Fran Eccles-Bech, chief executive of Manchester Law Society: “The Lexcel mark is the Law Society’s Practice Management Standard and for Kuits to achieve the accreditation for the eighth consecutive year is testament to their commitment and dedication to firmwide best practice.
“Achieving the standard is the result of an extremely thorough examination of the firm’s structure and administration practices and they should be proud to be one of an elite band of law firms in Manchester to hold the award.”
Philip Knight, Lexcel assessor and senior partner at Lambert Merson said: “Having completed a two day review of the organisation and running of the firm, I was delighted to recommend continued Lexcel accreditation for Kuits. This standard ensures that the organisation and delivery of legal services is carried out to the highest standard and examination of client feedback confirms that this is something the firm consistently achieves.
“There is a strong business and service ethic across all departments, linked to an open and supportive culture that is recognised by staff at all levels, enabling them to deliver legal services to the highest standard while also being approachable, personable and professional. All members of the firm should feel very proud of this latest achievement, which was due entirely to their energy, enthusiasm and diligence.”
