I contacted Burlingtons with a settlement that required immediate action. Richard Berry and Claire Sansome were absolutely amazing. They took over communications with the company in question, dealt with absolutely everything, explaining, checking with and keeping me informed at every stage. I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders the minute they took the case. If you are looking for highly competent, approachable, professional legal representation with integrity then I would definitely recommend you try Burlingtons.
I took an employment dispute to Burlingtons, as a freelancer working in the creative industries (film production), on an issue on non-payment for services I believed I had fully rendered to another company, for an agreed fee. Richard Berry (a partner) provided really sound advice about how to deal with the dispute, and helped me through the process with the other's party's counsel to a good resolution. Even if film and media were not the practice's primary industry, he understood the issues perfectly and advised sensibly. Their charging was very fair, given the disputed fess in question. Indeed the practice went beyond the call of duty to both provide a comprehensive initial consultation, and devise a strategy to complete the legal action once the other party had decided to contest. Overall the outcome was very satisfactory all around for me.
Richard Berry of Burlingtons Legal LLP dealt with a rather tricky employment tribunal matter for us back in August 2012. Claim against us was £36,000. Client engagement procedures were dealt with swiftly as our requirements were rather urgent. Richard got to grips with all the facts extremely quickly and was able to draft a commanding first response to the claimant's solicitors. His knowledge of employment law immediately showed in the rebuttal that he put to the other side. We settled out of court for £5,000. We were extremely pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Burlingtons to any business contacts.
