Leading North West law firm SAS Daniels LLP has been awarded the Investors in People Gold Standard, joining the top 7% of accredited organisations across the UK who believe in realising the potential of their people.
The firm which has over 70 legal advisers, including 23 partners operating out of four offices based in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton first achieved the Investors in People award in 1999 and has recently exceeded the bronze and silver accreditations, and going straight to gold!
This comes on the back of the firm winning silver for the ‘Developing Young People’ award at this year’s Stockport Business Awards and earlier this year, proudly reinforced its commitment to excellence after achieving its 10th successful Lexcel assessment, an international practice management standard only awarded to law firms who meet its rigorous criteria for business management and client care.
The firm has also recently reported success in the legal guides, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, setting another personal record and exceeding their previous results for both guides, with rankings covering all of the firm’s core practice teams. The firm also recently celebrated being ranked for the first time in ‘The Lawyer UK200’.
Investors in People is the UK’s leading accreditation for business improvement through people management and provides a wealth of resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business.
