Kuits retains top Law Society accreditation for tenth consecutive year09 Jul 2020
Manchester commercial law firm Kuits has secured the national Law Society’s legal practice quality mark, Lexcel, for the tenth year in a row.
Lexcel is a national standard, designed to recognise high standards of business management and client care in the legal profession.
In order to gain and retain the accreditation, firms must undergo background checks, complete a thorough application and assessment process, and usually receive an on-site visit from an independent Lexcel assessor. However this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the assessment process was carried out online with various members of the Kuits team.
Applicants are judged across areas including financial management, structure and strategy, risk management, client care, file and case management, and people management.
Steve Eccleston, managing partner at Kuits, said: “We are proud to have secured the Lexcel accreditation again this year, especially during the current climate. The adaption to working from home was one that our people took in their stride and our reaccreditation is a true testament to their commitment to best practice over the past months.
Philip Knight, Lexcel assessor and senior partner at Lambert Merson said: “I am delighted to recommend continued Lexcel accreditation for a tenth consecutive year to Kuits. After conducting my assessment, it was clear the practice is continuing to achieve the organisation and delivery of legal services to a very high standard.
“Despite the difficult backdrop, Kuits has continued to retain its open and supportive culture with a strong business and service ethos while still being approachable, personable and professional. This is certainly something they should be proud of.”
