“We were recommended to Legal Eye by a local firm and we met them at the beginning of the year. They explained what needed to be done to become CQS accredited and we commissioned them to prepare for us compliant documents, policies, procedures and the like in order to make a successful CQS application. We duly became CQS accredited and Legal Eye continue to ensure that our procedures remain compliant. We would be happy to recommend Legal Eye to any firms in a similar situation.”
