from start-ups, owner-managed businesses and medium enterprises through to international and public listed companies across a variety of sectors.
At the heart of our service are our expert lawyers who deliver clear, pragmatic and commercially astute solutions that protect your interests. But that’s not all – our ‘more than law’ approach means we also look at ways of supporting you in a more tailored and meaningful way, over and above as legal advisers.
We handle cross border and multi-disciplinary matters with specialist insight and language support from our diverse team, together with an international network of foreign lawyers, accountants, industry contacts and other professionals who are members of our own Burlingtons Private Members’ Club (visit Burlingtons.Club).
Burlingtons is listed in The Legal 500 directory and accredited under the Law Society’s family law and conveyancing quality schemes. We are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
A personal service, tailored to your needs, from an award winning team
After you become a client, you will have a partner in the firm as your main point of contact. They will manage your relationship with us – one we are fully committed to, and will nurture with loyalty, dedication, care and transparency.
We recognise that no two clients are the same. Creating well-thought legal solutions that focus on what is important to you requires an understanding of the broader context – your motivations, how your business works, the function of a transaction, and any risks or constraints that apply. That is exactly how we shape our approach. We will ask you the questions we need to build the detailed picture necessary to plan and execute your matters to best effect. This process can also help you to shape and refine your own thinking from perspectives you may not have considered.
We also adapt to your ways of working, whether as to reporting lines, language, timing or dovetailing our advice with that of your wider advisory team. If you need any advice beyond that available to you then we can introduce you to members of our carefully selected network of contacts, including accountants, foreign lawyers, wealth managers, banks and other professionals. We will have made sure anybody we refer you to shares our values in terms of service levels and quality.
As we develop our working relationship together we can advise you ever more proactively. This could be informing you about upcoming developments in the legal or regulatory landscape likely to affect you, or through making appropriate connections between your previous, current and future intended transactions.
Ultimately, our services will help you to make informed and carefully thought decisions at each step of working towards your goals.
A track record of achieving successful outcomes for clients
Our beginnings date back to 1994 when our senior partner, Deborah Mills, established a specialist oil and gas practice. Its reputation grew rapidly attracting the likes of British Gas, Shell and Esso as clients as well as the interest of other law firms in London.
The practice was courted for some time and eventually merged with Howard Kennedy in 2008 where Deborah led the Projects Team as a partner of the firm. In 2011 she left with her team to establish Burlingtons Legal in the heart of Mayfair as a full service law firm and the rest they say is history as the firm has grown from strength to strength.
In 2017 the practice moved to its prestigious headquarters at Stratford Place near Bond Street.
