The Lexcel quality standard has been revised and will come into force in 2008. Lexcel is ideal for firms seeking to achieve demonstrable excellence in practice management. The Law Society's official guides have been comprehensively updated in line with the new standard to help you understand the changes, and to attain and retain accreditation. They are also suitable for firms simply aiming to improve practice efficiency and profitability. This book offers template procedures to enable firms to draft and enforce policies and documentation to aid compliance. The templates are included on the accompanying free CD-ROM to enable quick and easy customisation. It is also available as part of the "Lexcel Practice Excellence Kit 4th Edition" (along with the "Lexcel Assessment Guide 4th Edition").
