Sector Specialisms

Recommended by the Legal 500

Specialist Sectors

Burnetts has developed an unrivalled specialism in legal services for 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 Cumbria to be recommended for its expertise in the public sector, and in particular education. 

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.
