06.09.2012 - Goody Burrett LLP Secures Top Accolade from National Law Society

For the fourth year in succession, Goody Burrett LLP in Colchester has retained the national Law Society's law management quality mark, Lexcel, initially awarded to the firm in July 2008.

To gain and retain Lexcel accreditation, practices must undergo a rigorous initial then annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from an experienced, trained Lexcel assessor.

Bryan Johnston, Managing Partner at Goody Burrett LLP, said: "While we are proud to have secured Lexcel, it is our clients and staff who are the main beneficiaries. They can be assured that the way we manage the practice has their interests at heart and runs efficiently. There is a lot of choice in the legal services market, but being Lexcel accredited demonstrates our commitment to client care and best practice."

President of the Law Society of England and Wales, Lucy Scott-Moncrief, said: "Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is no mean feat. There are many facets of being a Lexcel accredited law firm, including client care. A commitment to customer service in today's evermore competitive legal services market is vital. The scheme is a beacon of quality to clients and potential clients alike."

Goody Burrett LLP joins more than 1200 other legal practices in England & Wales with Lexcel accreditation. The practice management accolade has also gone international, with firms in Scotland, the Middle East, Poland and the Republic of Ireland having gained accreditation.
