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 founder 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 into Howard Kennedy in 2008 and remained there for some three years before spinning back out to establish Burlingtons.
