The assessment fee

Each assessment body will charge a fee for conducting a Lexcel assessment. The cost of assessment and subsequent annual maintenance visits varies according to the size of the practice. The duration of the assessment is typically based on:

  • The number of staff
  • The number and geographical location of offices
  • The number of different categories of law offered and work patterns
  • Whether a practice already has ISO 9000, Investors in People (IiP) or SQM
  • If the assessment is just for Lexcel or combined with ISO 9000 or IiP
