COOPERBURNETT - WHY USE US?
At CooperBurnett we pride ourselves on providing an exceptionally high level of service - this is what drives us and we aim to deliver this to every single client.
Within our team we boast extremely high levels of expertise and we deliver this knowledge in an efficient, friendly and professional manner.
At CooperBurnett, you can be sure of the same level of service and delivery that you’d expect from a City law firm but, as you would imagine, at lower rates. You’ll also be supported by the same lawyer throughout, which helps to build exceptional trust and a long-term relationship.
COOPERBURNETT - CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY
Having been based in Tunbridge Wells for many years, we feel very much part of both the business landscape and the local community.
We proactively support the business community in West Kent and East Sussex. Victoria Sampson and Katie Gillam have both held the role of President of Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge & District Law Society; while Victoria has twice been President of West Kent Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Highlighting how we support our team in building their careers, CooperBurnett is the co-founder of Next Generation Networking (NGN) – a forum for future partners, directors and business owners to expand their professional contacts. Please contact Katie Gillam if you are interested in learning more about NGN.
We take pride in sharing our knowledge with the community at large – with our partners often submitting articles and papers, speaking at conferences and seminars, and appearing in the media.
COOPERBURNETT – HOW WE HELP
Each year, our team at CooperBurnett selects a charity to support and our charity committee – which consists of Katie Hilsdon, Gareth Warner and Lisa Connolly – drives the fundraising for the year. This has included curry evenings and a team successfully completing the Three Peaks challenge in 24 hours. In 2019, a group of us are planning to cycle from London to Paris in just 24 hours!
We are currently raising money to support a young man called Oli Hilsdon, our colleague Katie’s cousin, who needs vital treatment for brain cancer. Find out more here: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/olisfund

A number of our team support local initiatives through volunteering. For example, Associate Solicitors Gemma Gillespie and Katie Hilsdon both volunteer for Citizens Advice one afternoon each month - Gemma offering advice on family matters and Katie on other areas of civil law. Tom Lumsden is active in his local community as a Governor of a local infant school and a member of the Parochial Church Council of a large church. Victoria Sampson is an ambassador for ellenor, working to raise funds and awareness of the charity in the local business community.
