Lexcel is the Law Society’s practice management standard. It is a scheme to certify that certain standards have been met following independent assessment.​

The Lexcel practice management standard is only awarded to solicitors who meet the highest management and customer care standards.

Lexcel accredited practices undergo rigorous independent assessment every year to ensure they meet required standards of excellence in areas such as client care, case management and risk management.

All the GLP Solicitors practices have been Lexcel accredited since 2002, indeed were amongst the first legal practices in the North West to achieve recognition as Lexcel accredited firms.​ The practices were re-accredited by the Lexcel appointed body, Centre for Assessment, in November 2020. The next re-accreditation is due in the Autumn of 2023.

GLP Solicitors’ independent legal practices are all committed to eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying incidents throughout their firms and to promoting equality and diversity within their policies, procedures and work practices.

The Partners of the various firms are also committed to ensuring equality and diversity in all GLP Solicitors’ offices and allied concerns.

This applies to their clients, staff and Partners, other solicitors and third party contacts. Resultant from the regulatory requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, as signatories to the Law Society Charter on Equality & Diversity and our own internal policies covering equality and diversity matters, we are obliged to publish a summary of aggregate information about GLP Solicitors on the GLP website.

The 2023 survey results are summarised on the document that can be downloaded here : Diversity and Equality Summary Download 2023.

Subject to the SRA’s timetable and direction, following the bi-annual pattern since 2013, it is envisaged that the next profession-wide ‘Diversity’ survey will be undertaken in 2025 a summary of which will be published shortly thereafter.

The GLP Solicitors practices are committed to providing high quality legal advice and client care.

Price Transparency

Following a year-long investigation by the Competition and Markets Authority in 2016, all solicitors are now required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to display on their website a range of prices for a specific number of work-types, including residential conveyancing, probate and estate administration.  This is intended to allow consumers of legal services (‘clients’) to make more informed decisions as to the provider of their legal services.

As with conveyancing, no two probates are the same and, whilst the information contained in the papers attached is representative of our legal fees, we recommend that you speak to the office to obtain an appropriate quote for your specific matter, be it a residential property sale, a purchase, a sale and purchase or a mortgage/re-mortgage enquiry.

Quotations for transfers of property or other aspects of conveyancing should be made direct to the practice.
