The out­stand­ing achieve­ments of Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass have been recog­nised by the judges of the most pres­ti­gious awards in the legal calendar.

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass has been short-list­ed for the Law Soci­ety’s Excel­lence Awards in the cat­e­go­ry of the Lex­cel Award for Excel­lence in Prac­tice Man­age­ment. Lex­cel is the Law Soci­ety’s prac­tice man­age­ment stan­dard, and is referred to as the Qual­i­ty Mark for Solic­i­tors’. Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass are part of less than 10% of law firms in Eng­land and Wales accred­it­ed to Lex­cel, which shows the firm has met high stan­dards in the way it is managed.

BBC Broad­cast­er Mishal Husain will present the awards at a pres­ti­gious black tie din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mo­ny which will take place on 18th Octo­ber at Old Billings­gate, London.

The awards reward the most out­stand­ing prac­ti­tion­ers in the legal pro­fes­sions. They are designed to recog­nise best prac­tice across the entire legal pro­fes­sion and to cel­e­brate excel­lence and out­stand­ing achieve­ment in areas that are cen­tral to the pro­fes­sion today. They high­light inno­v­a­tive busi­ness and qual­i­ty of life prac­tices, suc­cess­ful approach­es to prac­tice man­age­ment, con­tri­bu­tions through social respon­si­bil­i­ty and equal­i­ty and diver­si­ty initiatives.

Rick Bar­row, Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er, says: Lex­cel is all about mon­i­tor­ing and tai­lor­ing the way we pro­vide our legal ser­vices to our clients needs. This short list­ing demon­strates the firms achieve­ment in doing so, which includes client feed­back, finan­cial per­for­mance, risk man­age­ment, and oth­er busi­ness innovation.

We are very proud to have our achieve­ments and hard work con­sis­tent­ly recog­nised by the Law Society”

John Wot­ton, Law Soci­ety Pres­i­dent said: The stan­dard of entries for this year’s Excel­lence Awards has been excep­tion­al­ly high, and select­ing the short­list has been a chal­lenge for the judges.

The firms and indi­vid­u­als short­list­ed should be very proud. Their excel­lence and inno­va­tion stood out among very impres­sive candidates.

The Excel­lence Awards are a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty to cel­e­brate what is great about the legal pro­fes­sion, which in recent years has expe­ri­enced a tur­bu­lent eco­nom­ic cli­mate and now faces the chal­lenges cre­at­ed by the intro­duc­tion of ABS.”
