“Outstanding” Burnetts is Top Tier

Lawyers at a Cumbrian law firm have been described as "outstanding", "knowledgeable" and providing "fantastic response times" by a national guide to the UK’s legal sector.

Lawyers at a Cumbrian law firm have been described as "outstanding", "knowledgeable" and providing "fantastic response times" by a national guide to the UK’s legal sector.

In the 2014 edition of the Legal 500 which was published on 1st October Burnetts is recommended in ten areas of law (more than any other firm in the County) and ranked as top tier for its expertise in Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Litigation and Commercial Property.

The employment law team was singled out for its "quality service" with the head of the team, Kuba Strycharczyk being described as "outstanding". The family law team was recognised for its "excellent, flexible and value for money service" with the head of that team, Simon Mortimer being praised for being "trustworthy and reliable".

In addition the firm was the only practice in Cumbria to be recommended for its specialisms in education, clinical negligence and in advising clients with negligence claims against other professionals. Examples of the firm’s education experience are used throughout the Legal 500’s coverage, highlighting the depth and breadth of the teams’ specialism.

Nick Gutteridge, Managing Partner said, "What is great about the feedback in this year’s Legal 500 is that it reflects the service elements that we work hard to deliver and which are important to clients: value, responsiveness and knowledge. It is a credit to everyone at Burnetts that we have been recognised again and that we continue to be the most recommended firm in Cumbria."

The lawyers recommended in this year’s guide were: John Morris - Senior Partner, Nick Gutteridge - Managing Partner, Vaughan Jones - Head of Commercial Client Services, Simon Mortimer - Head of Private Client Services, John Noctor - Head of Company and Commercial, Patricia Hall - Head of Dispute Resolution, Tony Lake - Head of Commercial Property, Kuba Strycharczyk - Head of Employment Law, Angela Curran - Head of Medical Law and Richard Miller - Head of Agriculture. Partners Vicki Jagger, Natalie Ruane, Victoria Watson and Consultant Doug Claxton were also recognised.

Law firms are included in the Legal 500 on merit alone.
