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 2021.
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.
