Commitment the key to top rankings
Three Newcastle lawyers have been recognised in The Legal 500’s latest guide to the legal profession.
The Newcastle trio represents three of 24 lawyers from Burnetts who have been ranked in the prestigious legal sector directory with commitment to clients being the most-cited reason for the lawyers’ top rankings.
Angela Curran, Head of Burnetts’ Medical Negligence & Serious Injury team is described as a “very charismatic and client-focused” lawyer who “works tirelessly” on behalf of her clients.
Paul Brown, an Associate Solicitor and specialist in serious injury claims was praised for being a “top drawer” solicitor who “fights the corner for his clients” and is noted for his “gentle and considered manner while having a firm grip on each of his cases and a determined approach to litigation.”
Head of Corporate Law, Vaughan Jones is recommended for being “very knowledgeable and responsive” as well as “sharp as a razor”.
Alongside lawyers’ individual rankings, firms are also ranked for team specialisms: four of the firm’s teams warrant the highest, Top Tier ranking: Corporate and Commercial; Commercial Litigation; Commercial Property and Education.
Burnetts is also recognised for its expertise in advising on family, employment, agribusiness and trusts and probate issues.
Nick Gutteridge, Burnetts’ Managing Partner said, “That Burnetts provides in-depth legal knowledge and a wide breadth of expertise is a given for most clients. What is important to them, whether they are buying a company or have suffered a medical accident, is that the service they receive from us is outstanding. Clients rightly demand accessibility and responsiveness and a lawyer that will go the extra mile for them. We’re extremely grateful to the clients who took part in the Legal 500 research and shared their positive experiences of Burnetts.”
Law firms are included in the Legal 500 on merit alone. The rankings are the culmination of many months of research and interviews with law firms and, most importantly, their clients.
Burnetts has offices in Dean Street, Newcastle as well as throughout Cumbria.
