First African law firm secures Lexcel Accreditation

AB & David, a West Africa-based law firm with head office in Accra, Ghana, has become the first African law firm to secure the Law Society of England and Wales’ international law management quality mark, ‘Lexcel’. Lexcel is a recognized international accreditation scheme for law firms and in-house legal departments, which is only awarded to those who meet the highest management and customer care standards.

Lexcel accredited practices undergo ongoing rigorous independent assessment every year to ensure they maintain the required standards of excellence.

Nicholas Fluck, President of the Law Society said: Gaining and maintaining Lexcel is no mean feat. As business becomes increasingly global so does our profession. Law firms and their clients demand the same high standards of practice. We are delighted to see the first African law firm join the list of international Lexcel firms.
