Burnetts is expanding its West Cumbria base with a new office at Cockermouth’s Lakeland Business Park and celebrating its move with a Cake Sale in aid of The Times & Star’s Hospice@Finkle Street Appeal.
The Cumbrian law firm will open its new West Cumbria office on 16th September 2013 under the leadership of Tracy Stainton who joined the firm a year ago. The Cake Sale will be held on Wednesday September 18th.
West Cumbrian born and bred Tracy said, “We decided that a charity cake bake would be a great way to get to know our new Cockermouth neighbours and to help raise some money for the Hospice@Finkle Street Appeal in the process. Our West Cumbria team is all set to demonstrate that we can do cupcakes as well as contracts!”
Speaking about Burnetts’ move from Westlakes to Cockermouth, Tracy said, “Lakeland Business Park offers a great, central location from which to provide our services to people across West Cumbria. At our new location we will be able to offer free client parking and flexible evening and Saturday appointments for those who are unable to get into the office during the working week. I know that people locally will welcome the nationally recognised lawyers being available on their doorstep.”
She continued, “Westlakes was a great spring-board, in particular in helping us to develop our base of clients in the nuclear sector, but we now want to broaden our services for the business community. Our bigger premises will also give us scope to provide an enhanced service and a wider range of support to private clients. “
Tracy will be based full-time in West Cumbria, along with Medical Law solicitor Lynne Hall. Lawyers from other teams including Family Law, Agriculture, Wills, Commercial Property and Company Commercial will also work from Cockermouth.
This latest expansion follows the opening of a Penrith base in January and supplements Burnetts’ other bases at Victoria Place and Rosehill in Carlisle and in Gosforth, Newcastle.
As well as the Cake Sale during its opening week, the firm will also be promoting its new West Cumbria office with a series of legal briefings. The sessions will focus on employment law, a complex field which is Tracy’s main area of expertise. The first session will be an employment law update on October 17th at Lakes College West Cumbria. Further information about the full range of seminars can be found at www.burnetts.co.uk/events.
The Cake Sale will take place from 10am until 12pm on Wednesday September 18th at 3c Lakeland Business Park, Cockermouth. To find out more, contact Tracy Stainton on 01900 510366 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
