We also work closely with a selection of charities, so we can give something back to the communities we work in, and we invest heavily in the future and development of our people.
Here are the full details of our current accreditations, recognitions and trusted partners.
We’ve held IIP accreditation since 2000, and it gives us a straightforward, proven framework to deliver business improvement through people. We aim to ensure that we achieve success through everyone who works here and that everyone feels a part of that success.
IIP sets a high standard which can vary at each assessment. So as a firm, we must adapt and make changes where necessary to ensure that we meet the accreditation standards.
Each year brings new areas of focus and challenges for our business, and we have to constantly review and update our business policies to ensure we stay ahead of our competitors.
Lexcel, a business accreditation from the Law Society that supports excellence in legal practice management and client care, helps us ensure we have the necessary policies, procedures and frameworks in place.
