Parke Lawyers quality system is audited and certified to world class standards.
Parke Lawyers operates within a business management system designed to ensure delivery of high quality legal services in compliance with ISO 9001 and LAW 9000. The practice has been independently audited by SAI Global and achieved certification in May 2009. This provides a benchmark by which procedures, communications and our responsiveness are measured and annual audits ensure we maintain our standards at the highest level.
LAW 9000-Legal Best Practice incorporates all of the requirements of ISO 9001 and thereby provides an excellent framework of internationally accepted quality business management principles and practices. In addition, the standard addresses issues and activities unique to a legal practice such as:
- matter files;
- business planning;
- risk management planning; and
- Engagement contracts.
We have also developed an information security management system (ISMS) to assist in determining how information is processed, stored, transferred, archived and destroyed, thereby ensuring our information technology and data protection policies comply with international standard ISO/IEC 27001:2005.
