The Law Society, Britain’s counterpart to the American Bar Association,closely associates with Lexcel. A Lexcel publication (at page 10) mentions the availability of “guidelines for those wishing to use the services of management consultants.” [Blog author’s note: that would include me].
In an appropriately lawyerlike disclaimer, it cautions: “The guidelines are not intended to be prescriptive or exhaustive, but they should assist in establishing the suitability and competence of consultants.” If you would like to download the guidelines, click here. I have at times held forth on the topic (See my post of Jan. 1, 2008: consulting with 15 references.).
