A silver lining... SH&Co. re-accredited Lexcel award

At a time when everything seems to pale into insignificance when placed alongside basic human survival and maintaining sanity whilst in lockdown, it’s hard to feel positive about many things.

But we are trying to see the good in the world around us and celebrate good news wherever possible.

So, we’re truly delighted to announce that for the 7th consecutive year we have been re-accredited the Law Society’s quality mark, Lexcel - the mark of excellence for practice management), with a 100% pass rate.

It’s not easy to secure this accreditation in the best of circumstances let alone in the current working climate; so, as a collective team, we are incredibly proud to have achieved this.

The Lexcel practice management standard is only awarded to solicitors who meet the highest management and customer care standards and we’ve undergone rigorous independent assessment to ensure we meet the required standards of excellence in areas such as client care, case management and risk management.

Lexcel has only been awarded to one in ten law firms, so it acts as a useful guide for prospective clients wishing to identify the best legal practices.

When we make it out of this terrible time, we hope you are reassured to know with complete confidence that the way we manage our practice will continue to have your best interests at heart.
