the public sector. Our clients include public sector organisations like
local authorities, government agencies, residential social landlords
and education establishments. In the Legal 500,
the annual guide to UK law firms, Burnetts is the only law firm in

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 charities and tourism sectors.
