Burnetts has developed an unrivalled specialism in legal services for the public sector. Our clients include public sector organisations like the North West Development Agency as well as smaller local authorities like Allerdale Borough Council, residential social landlords like Riverside and education establishments like UCLan and Blackburn College. In the Legal 500, the annual guide to UK law firms, Burnetts is the only law firm in Cumbria to be recommended for its expertise in the public sector and housing associations. The firm is nationally recognised for its education law advice.
We have a special understanding of this sector where attention to detail, reliability of service and, of course, consistently high quality of advice are critical. This understanding has been developed not just through our experience of working with the public sector, but in many cases our experience of working within the sector. Amongst our ranks are former workers from county councils, local authorities and education.
As well as our expertise in the public sector, Burnetts also has niche specialisms in the superyachts and charities sectors.
