Law Society Accreditation for Price Bailey 3 September 2015 Share Employment law specialist Price Bailey Legal Services has been awarded the Law Society’s prestigious Lexcel quality mark for legal practices. Lexcel is a recognised accreditation scheme that provides assurance that law firms and in-house legal departments meet high client care and business management standards. “While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our SME clients and growing team who are the main beneficiaries,” said Price Bailey Partner, Howard Sears. “They can be assured that the way we manage the practice has their interests at heart and runs efficiently. Being Lexcel accredited demonstrates our commitment to client care and best practice.” To gain Lexcel accreditation, a practice must undergo a rigorous assessment process including background checks and an on-site visit from an independent, experienced Lexcel assessor. Jonathan Smithers, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, said: “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is a considerable feat. There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including excellence in client care. A real commitment to customer service in today’s evermore competitive legal services market is vital.” Price Bailey Legal Services LLP is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and provides legal advice and support for any contentious or non-contentious employment issues.
