Exeter, United Kingdom - February 22, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Leading Exeter Family Law Solicitor were independently audited and awarded the Law Society’s legal practice quality mark known as Lexcel.

Lexcel provides a flexible, supportive management framework to promote a quality management approach and client service in how to run a legal practice. The framework helps practices develop consistent operational efficiencies and client services, manage risk effectively, reduce costs and promote profitability. It is the most appropriate Standard for the legal profession as it was written by solicitors for solicitors.

Lexcel sets the required standard in seven different areas:

– structure and strategy,

– financial management,

– information management,

– people management,

– risk management,

– client care, file and

– case management.

Lexcel scheme rules outline the design, principles and governance processes of the scheme.

Lexcel is independently assessed and demonstrates Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitor’s commitment to consistently deliver services that meet their client expectations. The Lexcel Accreditation is re-assessed every year.

They had some very positive feedback from the audit assessor:

“This was a hugely positive initial assessment visit which provided extensive evidence of compliance with the Lexcel standard even at this early stage”

“Overall, I was extremely impressed by the way that the practice has been able to adapt their policies, procedures and plans to meet the requirements of version 6.1 of the standard”

“Throughout the firm I was impressed by the excellent morale and positive attitude of the members of the firm and how they are looking forward to the continuing growth and development of the practice”

“It was also good to hear how positive people are about the move towards paperless working and how everybody, without exception, is clear about the potential benefits of that change”

A milestone for the practice, gaining the Lexcel standard is important for the firm because it shows that they have financial, management and client care systems in place which are comparable to much bigger and longer established competitors.

Gaining Lexcel is a big step forward for the practice as it demonstrates that they are now a fully established and quality practice and will assist us to improve the reach of our services.

As an exercise, all of the team were involved in the preparation for audit and most were interviewed. As they have the those that they all have a stake in the successful audit outcome.

Boeing 737 Max 8 woes crimp Asian airlines' growth plans

May 27, 2019

SINGAPORE — Asian airlines are cutting routes, revamping their schedules and leasing extra aircraft to fill gaps left by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8s after deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. So far, regional carriers have managed to avoid major disruptions, but analysts expect that idling the Max 8s, a fuel-efficient update of Boeing's popular 737, will crimp growth plans in the near future. As investigations into the crashes continue, Boeing anticipates a $1 billion increase in costs related to the 737 Max, including fixing software implicated in the disasters, adding pilot training and compensating...

Thai king celebrates coronation with spectacular parade

May 27, 2019

BANGKOK — Thailand's newly crowned King Maha Vajiralongkorn made a spectacular public appearance in front of his countrymen Sunday, carried atop a golden palanquin by soldiers in ancient fighting uniforms in a procession through Bangkok's historic quarter. Hundreds of other soldiers marched in front, behind and alongside the palanquin in scorching heat as the procession set off from Bangkok's Grand Palace just after 5 p.m. with a marching band setting the pace. Also taking part in the slow parade were the prime minister and other senior officials in the military government as well as the king's wife, Queen Suthida, and...

Far from glitzy tech hubs, Chinese city bets big on VR

May 27, 2019

NANCHANG, China — Liu Zixing craned his neck forward for help with fastening the goggles for his first ever taste of virtual reality. He took a break from the mining ore business to travel to a VR theme park in this Chinese provincial capital not known for high technology. "It feels like reality," Liu said after shooting down robots in a virtual fighter jet, strapped to a spinning gyroscope lit in purple. "It's just like you're riding in a plane." Enthusiasm for VR has cooled somewhat after years of hype, but China's leaders are trying to drum up excitement, hoping...

Despite big plans, N. Korea's trains still go almost nowhere

May 27, 2019

TOKYO — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's decision to take a train to his summit with President Vladimir Putin in Russia's far east hints at the potential of a much bigger dream long held by many in Asia: unimpeded travel by rail from the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula to Moscow and beyond. The economic benefits range from linking big, thriving markets and bolstering regional cooperation to slashing costs and travel durations. But with sanctions and distrust standing in the way, it could be a very long time before any trains working their way north from Seoul will...

Emperor Akihito saw diplomacy as path to make amends for war

May 27, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's Emperor Akihito has had a lifetime mission: Make amends for a war fought in his father's name. Akihito was just 11 when he heard his father Hirohito's voice on the radio declaring Japan's surrender in World War II. Though he wouldn't become emperor himself for another 44 years, Akihito embraced his role as peacemaker and often represented his father on reconciliatory missions that began with Japan's return to the international community in the early 1950s. When he abdicates April 30, Akihito will become the first emperor in Japan's modern history to see his era end without ever...
