It is a major step for a firm to apply for SQM accreditation/a Legal Aid Franchise. It will take a lot of your time but should be of help to your business. However, how do you juggle that with all of your other responsibilities – and will you succeed?
We can help you. We will assist with the preparation for your application. In essence, we will advise & review what you have filled in.
This is a project with a one-off charge which depends on the readiness of the firm to meet the standards and the preparation required. The Initial charge of £500 + VAT is to be paid up front, any other charges (see below) to be agreed and then paid up front before delivery.
What we will do
Assistance with the preparation of your application for the Lexcel or SQM audit, review of your application, advice on what you need to amend to improve this and assistance with answering and questions received in response to the application.
This includes assessment of any existing documentation, business plans, your current practices and procedures and assistance with the preparation of the application. If it transpires that more work is required we will discuss how we can help.
All work is carried out remotely unless by separate arrangement.
£500 + VAT
(We often find that firms are not ready to make the application and require a Compliance Plan, Business Plan and Finance Plan in addition. We can assist with these at a cost of £250 + VAT each, such to be discussed and agreed before being incurred.)
We will always be willing to bespoke around your needs, so what is written above is indicative. We prefer to have a free, no obligation chat with you first to work out what you need and how we may help.

It is not uncommon for firms also to need an OPM (Office Procedures Manual) or to update their OPM. We can also assist with this. Below is a link to that service:
