Benefits of accreditation

APIL accreditation provides a quality mark of competence and specialist expertise for solicitors and barristers dealing with personal injury claims. This quality mark helps the consumer to recognise expertise and specialisms within the profession. The accreditation scheme demonstrates that an APIL lawyer has achieved a specific standard. With accredited corporate and individual membership, you will:

"Thank you... I am pleased that people are using your specialist group to find accredited lawyers."
  • receive referrals of new enquiries from members of the public, depending on your location and specialties. APIL currently receives around 230 enquiries each month
  • become linked to a major national public information campaign, promoting specialist expertise through the logo and website
  • benefit from APIL’s supporting press and PR activity to support APIL’s national public information campaign
  • through APIL’s consumer website and advertising campaigns, receive independent recognition for you and your organisation’s:
    • expertise
    • competencies
    • high professional standards
    • high standards for client care
  • ensure your practice/chambers is clearly differentiated.
