Banks, funders and insurers, to name but a few external stakeholders are increasingly looking for evidence of robust business planning and sustainability of a practice. Lexcel provides the perfect non-prescriptive framework for building and maintaining a profitable, efficient and well-managed practice and attaining Lexcel accreditation goes a long way to providing that evidence.
This seminar is specifically designed for firms not yet Lexcel accredited but who are seeking external support and guidance to interpret the requirements of the standard whilst gaining practical experience of how to develop and implement those requirements.
The seminar is aimed at those charged with preparing the practice for assessment and will equip you with the in-depth practical and technical expertise needed to successfully and swiftly implement policies and procedures to allow you to proceed to assessment.
The session will look in detail at;
• How the Lexcel scheme operates
• Overlaps with other quality standards
• Dealing with internal objections and managing change effectively
• Key requirements of the seven sections of the standard
• How to implement the required policies and procedures of each section of your practice.
• Common problem areas
• Preparing for assessment
• Surviving the assessment
• Contributing to learning and development in the practice
This course is ideal for legal professionals who are looking to take their firm along the path towards demonstrating quality in relation to legal practice management standards.
