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.

Thailand's new government could be unstable, short-lived

Mar 24, 2019

BANGKOK — Thailand's election Sunday is likely to produce a weak, unstable government whether it's a civilian or military-backed party that cobbles together a coalition, setting off a new phase of uncertainty in a country that's a U.S. ally in Southeast Asia and one of the world's top tourist destinations. The election is Thailand's first since its military seized power from an elected government in May 2014. It was the conservative establishment's third major attempt by either military or legal coup to eradicate the influence of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, a tycoon who made his fortune in telecommunication and...

Exiled Thai leader is father of the bride ahead of election

HONG KONG — Thailand's exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra won't know until Sunday whether people in his homeland are still fans of his politics, but he was happy as he hosted a wedding reception in Hong Kong for his youngest daughter. Though ostensibly a family affair with a raft of VIP guests, the timing of Friday ceremony two days ahead of Thailand's first general election since a 2014 military coup seemed to carry an implicit message to Thaksin's countrymen: Don't forget me and my political allies when you go out to vote. Thai Princess Ubolratana Mahidol, who made an...
