Watkins Solicitors have maintained the Lexcel accreditation since 2018.

Lexcel sets the standard for:

  • client care
  • risk management
  • people management
  • structure and strategy
  • financial management
  • information management
  • file and case management

Firms who achieve Lexcel demonstrate the ability to:

  • effectively manage risk
  • attract new business and increase client retention
  • reduce client complaints and increase client satisfaction
  • comply with new practice rules and regulatory requirements
  • increase profitability and efficiency by using standardised processes

The accreditation is reviewed annually by The Law Society and its representatives to ensure that standards do not deviate.
