Leading North West law firm, SAS Daniels LLP, has reinforced its commitment to excellence after achieving its 10th successful Lexcel assessment, as well as being re-awarded its Investors in People accreditation.
Lexcel is the Law Society’s international practice management standard and is only awarded to law firms and in-house legal teams who meet its rigorous criteria for business management and client care.
SAS Daniels has upheld its IiP status for 15 consecutive years, and was noted for performing “at a level well in excess of the Investors in People Standard” by assessors, demonstrating the firm’s dedication to looking after its team.
With more than 70 legal advisors, including 24 partners, SAS Daniels operates out of offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton.
Richard Smith, Partner and Head of the Quality Group at SAS Daniels LLP, said: “These are both highly coveted hallmarks of excellence.
“We’re proud to receive formal recognition for the way in which we work, as both achievements are testament to our commitment to upholding exacting standards.”
Dolores Conville, Product Manager for Accreditation Schemes at The Law Society, added: “Lexcel is a quality management system that is independently assessed and can demonstrate a practice’s commitment and ability to consistently deliver services that meet client expectations, improve overall satisfaction and assist regulatory compliance.
“Research conducted in 2014 with over 300 accredited practices shows that 92% of practices were able to improve their client service as a result of holding Lexcel accreditation. 96% reported that Lexcel helped them improve compliance with regulatory requirements and 3 in 4 said their operations became more efficient.”
SAS Daniels is keen to not only maintain its existing standards, but continually raise the bar when it comes to quality management, client care and investing in its people.
