Our Accreditations

Law Society accreditations demonstrate a law firm’s proven competency in given areas of law.

Accreditations are awarded to firms as well as individual solicitors within a practice as a recognition of their competency and expertise in specific areas of law.

An accredited firm must maintain relevant standards of competency and expertise by means of periodic re-selection, re-accreditation and re-authorisation.
