There must be at least one accredited senior litigator (or above) at each branch who has personal responsibility for the supervision and management of personal injury cases
Client care - there must be a consistently high standard of client care throughout the firm
Training and development - the organisation ensures that all staff are provided with training opportunities to improve their skills and legal knowledge, and to meet the needs of clients;
Supervision – each senior litigator or fellow can only supervise up to ten personal injury lawyers
Quality assurance - there must be a comprehensive and documented procedure for who should authorise each stage of your case, and a similar procedure for how case files are reviewed
The organisation agrees to have its performance monitored by APIL to ensure standards are being maintained.
