Dorset Based law firm MJP Law has been granted the highest The National Law Society’s Law Management quality mark, by achieving 100% in their Lexcel accreditation – an outstanding achievement for the company for the second year running.

Lexcel is widely recognised and respected award, developed specifically for the legal profession. It is an optional accreditation scheme for law firms, which gives assurance that a practice meets high client care and business management standards. To gain and retain Lexcel accreditation, MJP Law has had to undergo a rigorous initial then annual application and assessment process. This includes conducting background checks and an on-site visit from a Law Society appointed Lexcel assessor.

Managing Director of the firm, Martin Pate said: “To achieve 100% in the Lexcel scheme is a great achievement. This award is a reflection of the hardworking and dedicated team within MJP Law, whom I am proud to have as my colleagues. Our practice has recently celebrated our 10th year in business and we have continued to achieve year on year growth which we attribute to our commitment to our client care, investment in the latest technology, strengthening our position in the East Dorset area which offices in Wimborne, Verwood, and Kinson.”

The President of the Law Society of England and Wales 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 Law Society assessor, Tracy Thompson said “the entire practice seems to be very well run and you all clearly work hard to ensure the practice management standard continues to be embraced within the firm and as such I have no hesitation in recommending to the Law Society that your Lexcel accreditation continue. “

By undergoing the rigorous Lexcel application and assessment process practices shows the positive steps MJP Law taking to help clients in the increasingly diverse, complicated legal services market. The scheme is a beacon of quality to clients and potential clients alike.”
