Lexcel is the Law Society’s international practice management standard, and has been developed specifically for the legal profession and gives assurances that a practice meets high standards for client care and business management.
DBS, which has an office on The Ropewalk in Nottingham, retained the standard after undergoing a rigorous assessment process, which included background checks and an on-site visit from an experienced Lexcel assessor. This is the third year that the practice has held this accreditation.
Davinder Bal, Chairman of DBS Law, said: “We have always prided ourselves on being a law firm that is accessible, caring and friendly, while providing a wide range of legal services to the highest standards. This accreditation is a testament to our core values and ethos.
“While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our clients and staff who are the main beneficiaries. There is a lot of choice in the legal services market, but being Lexcel accredited demonstrates our commitment to client care and best practice, and sets us apart from other law firms.”
Nicholas Fluck, president of the Law Society of England and Wales, said: “Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is no mean feat. There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including client care. A commitment to customer service in today’s evermore competitive legal services market is vital.
“By undergoing rigorous Lexcel application and assessment process, practices can show the positive steps they are taking to help clients in the increasingly diverse, complicated legal services market.
“The scheme is a beacon of quality to clients and potential clients alike.”
