Just one year on from being one of only 11% of law firms in the country to be awarded the Lexcel accreditation, JMP Solicitors sailed through the onsite re-assessment. The Law Society assessor remarked: “The firm has succeeded in implementing the high standards required by the Lexcel Quality Mark within the day to day operations and all staff members are aware of the requirements. All the areas of good practice (client care, case management, etc.) should be commended, especially given this is the firm’s first re-assessment against the Lexcel standards.”
JMP Solicitors represents clients and businesses in litigation and advisory legal matters from all over England and Wales. Managing Director Ian Howard said: “We’re delighted to have retained our Lexcel quality mark with no corrective action needed. The standard is recognised by many clients, particularly those in the financial and commercial sectors. Our clients have the re-assurance from our representative body that their matters are being dealt with to the very highest standards”.
“This is a great achievement and everyone at the firm can be really proud. Our clients will continue to receive the same standard of care with the added comfort that the standard has been met” remarked co- Director Yvonne Carratt.
Director Samantha Towle brought the firm national recognition earlier this year as lead lawyer in the landmark case on Japanese knotweed infestation against Network Rail heard before the Master of the Rolls in the Court of Appeal.
