Our Awards and Accreditations

Lexcel is the Law Society's legal practice quality mark for excellence in legal practice management and excellence in client care. It provides a flexible, supportive management framework to help practices develop consistent operational efficiencies and client services, manage risk effectively, reduce costs and promote profitability.


Only 11% of the 5,500 law practices in England and Wales have achieved this accreditation.


Lexcel sets the required Standard in seven different areas: structure and strategy, financial management, information management, people management, risk management, client care, file and case management. Lexcel scheme rules outline the design, principles and governance processes of the scheme.


JMP Solicitors passed this standard on the first application in June 2017 and were awarded the mark with no non-compliances noted.

Practices applying for accreditation must demonstrate compliance with the CQS protocol and, where necessary, amend existing policies or draft new ones to meet the requirements.
