Accreditations & Memberships

Lexcel

Lexcel

Lexcel stands for Legal Excellence and is a nationally accredited award of excellence in legal practice awarded by the Law Society to law firms who meet a very exacting criteria and can demonstrate exceptional client care, support and development of their staff and the effective management of risk throughout the firm.

Fosters' first audit took place in February 2014 and we are proud to continue to be Lexcel accredited. As part of the process our auditor met with a number of staff across all branches, undertook a review of our files, both opened and closed, reviewed our central working documents and our approach to client care. His view was that staff were loyal, committed and keen for the firm to succeed and that the firm as a whole had achieved a very good result particularly given the relatively short time frame in which this had been achieved.

Our first Formal accreditation was awarded by the Law Society on 12 May 2014. We are extremely proud to have achieved this accreditation and feel that it is a reflection of Fosters' high standards and commitment to both our clients and staff and will provide reassurance and confidence to those clients using Fosters' services for the first time.
