Lexcel was created by the Law Society to measure high standards of client care and business management. To gain Lexcel accreditation, Anthony Collins Solicitors undertook a rigorous application and assessment process, which included on-site scrutiny of policies, procedures and team practices from a Lexcel assessor.

The achievement of Lexcel follows the firm’s success in the 2013 Chambers and Partners guide, where it increased its ranking across seven specialist sectors and a total of 19 solicitors were individually recognised for excellence in their field.

A new head of risk and compliance, Rob Adams, will be working with teams to retain the Lexcel accreditation, helping to ensure that a consistent and high standard of service continues to be delivered across the firm.

Romaine Thompson, senior partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “We are extremely pleased to have achieved our goal of Lexcel accreditation. It confirms that we are putting the needs of our clients at the centre of our processes and that the practice is running with efficiency. We will continue to look for ways of making further improvements."
