About our combined experience and expertise
Our 11 solicitors have over 200 years of practising experience between them, supported by 15 other members of staff working out of our town centre offices at 3 Hatter Street, Bury St Edmunds.
In a typical year we look after around 3,000 clients, over half of whom live or trade in Bury St Edmunds – so we truly are a local firm. Of the remainder, at least half are based in the region. We also act for a growing number of clients based elsewhere in the country, who choose us for our reputation.
We appreciate that the law can be intimidating but our expert solicitors can steer you through the issues and help achieve speedy and satisfactory results.

About our Community Support & Engagement
Ever since they founded the firm, Robin Burnett and David Barker have found active involvement in community organisations immensely beneficial and personally fulfilling.
For the same reason, we encourage all members of staff to engage in local community organisations – whether relevant to their area of work or simply something which interests them.
More details of the organisations supported in this way can be found in individual profiles.
As a firm we normally support involvement in those organisations by making resources available, whether that be time, physical resources or facilities and occasionally with small additional financial support.
