Managing Partner Nick Gutteridge
“This is all down to our people. Their care for our clients is genuine and it’s this that sets Burnetts apart, along with their consistent willingness to go that extra mile. To have this recognised so clearly and be ranked among the best law firms in the UK in the 2023 Chambers Guide is wonderful, but actually we’re proud – every day – of our people and our service.”
