Welcome to PDA Legal.

Our team has worked with more than 300  Law Firms and Legal Departments over a period of 16 years, in both assessment and development capacities.

We have undertaken around ten percent of all of the national recognitions for Lexcel; having conducted more than 1500 assessment and maintenance visits.

In addition to being the authors of the official Lexcel Small Firms' Toolkit, we:

  • help firms to develop and maintain their OFR compliance systems;
  • provide consultancy for and assessment of legal sector Quality Marks;
  • manage risk and drive quality through implementation of effective systems and procedures.

Ours is a very personal approach, working with clients to ensure that we develop and deliver activities and systems that meet their particular needs.

Our team includes IRCA Lead Auditors for ISO 9000:2008, auditors for the LAA's Specialist Quality Mark (SQM) and the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).
