You could be forgiven for thinking any sort of accreditation is a costly and time consuming process. The fact is it would be if you were doing it on your own without any external help. Different organisations are at different stages of their business and so depending on how you run your business you could be quite close to accreditation or you could be a million miles away.
We can help you whatever stage your business is at. We can restructure your whole management system and start from scratch (which sometimes is the easiest and cheapest thing to do) or we can tweak your existing systems to align them with the standards set by the awarding body. Either way, with our expert help you can achieve accreditation in a painless way that will not break your bank!
We have specialist knowledge of the legal sector and have helped numerous firms achieve the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) and Lexcel accreditation.
The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Membership establishes a level of credibility for firms with stakeholders such as regulators, lenders and insurers as well as residential homebuyers and sellers.
Since inception in 2011, the CQS has created a trusted community which has helped year on year to deter fraud and continually improve standards across the residential conveyancing sector.
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.
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.
Practices and organisations accredited against the Standard have the flexibility to implement procedures that are appropriate to their circumstances.
