How Do I Apply For Lexcel Accreditation?

Step One - Self-assessment

Before a formal assessment, firms must complete the Lexcel v4.1 self-assessment checklist. This must be sent to your chosen Assessment Body but more importantly it should assist you in identifying areas of weakness before a full Lexcel assessment takes place.

Step Two - Select an assessment body

Once you are satisfied that your firm meets the Lexcel standard you must select an assessment body.

Step Three - Submit your application

Prior to your assessment you must submit an application form to the Lexcel office. This must include:

  • Professional indemnity insurance details
  • List of all employees broken down into fee earners and non fee earners

The self-assessment checklist must be sent to your Assessment Body before assessment. The Lexcel office will then send the assessment body a copy of the application form and other relevant information.
