We have retained the services of Legal Eye for over 3 years and have found the relationship invaluable. Initially to complete our accreditation for CQS but to generally ensure we are compliant with the legal regulatory compliance issues. We felt swamped by the requirements of the SRA and others and it is uneconomic for us to spend time undertaking these tasks rather than fee earning. It goes a lot further than that though as with the experience of Legal Eye we get a great deal more and for a very competitive cost. We have formed a fantastic working relationship with Loschinee and cannot recommend her highly enough nor Legal Eye. Loschinee is always willing to fit in with our timescale and is very responsive and is a real asset to our business. I am happy to speak to anyone who wishes to obtain a more detailed recommendation. I just wish I had secured the services of Legal Eye a lot earlier than I did. Certainly a gold plated service. – M Blenkarne, Apex Law LLP August 2016
Priya contacted me swiftly in response to a query I had raised regarding a new venture I needed assistance with. It was at that point that I knew that Priya was a consummate professional who is exceptionally knowledgeable and engaging with her topic. Having immediately decided that Priya was someone who could assist me, a site visit was arranged to discuss the aims and outcomes of my venture and how this could be translated into a compliance framework. Needless to say, at the site visit, Priya excelled herself in making light work of how compliance was pertinent to my venture. A whole new world was opened to me, with fantastic points of view presented, and I have Priya to thank for that. In summation, I would like to say that I have been exceptionally delighted by the services that Legal Eye offer in this regard and that Priya is an invaluable asset to the company in assisting firms and individuals attain their goals within a rigorous and compliant framework. I would have no hesitation in recommending Priya and Legal Eye and I very much looking forward to forging a strong relationship with you as time progresses. – Dr Amit Varsani, General Defence Counsel, 23 August 2016
The Legal Eye Quality Standard has been available to firms and companies for over 3 years now, recognising their compliance achievements and quality of management within their practice areas. We are delighted with the momentum in which accredited companies and firms have embraced the compliance challenge.
There are a selection of accreditations and schemes in the market available just to solicitors, and for some there are industry specific standards within their specialist areas, however, the Legal Eye Quality Standard unites all those within the legal profession, including law firms regulated by the SRA, CLC and CILEx and those providing services to, and working with the legal industry such as IT providers, estate agents, search companies and many more.
Legal practices can have confidence and peace of mind in the areas of their business that they are outsourcing to companies who have been assessed under the same standards expected of them, reducing their regulatory risk. The LEQS review evaluate all elements of the firm/business, from induction through to cyber crime and anti fraud provisions.
Our team have been working with companies and firms across the country, ensuring that the LEQS is specific to the type of work and business seeking accreditation. The application of the standard is bespoke to the businesses we work with whilst ensuring that the core compliance and regulatory requirements are met, providing an industry standard, which can be recognised by all.– Priya Anand Patel
I cannot praise Rhonda Treacy-Hales highly enough for her assistance and guidance in helping us prepare for our 2016 V6 Lexcel re-accreditation. As this was my first experience managing a Lexcel accreditation, I found Rhonda’s insight and professional, proactive approach to be fundamental in helping us achieve the high praise we received from our assessor on the day of audit. – Marc Carmel, Practice Manager, Lyndales Solicitors, 8 September 2016
