CooperBurnett LLP is celebrating its inclusion in The Legal 500 for its Corporate and Commercial team (in Kent, Surrey and Sussex) with both Partners, Victoria Sampson and Andrew Hawkins, listed as ‘Recommended Lawyers’ for the region.
The Legal 500 rankings are based on a series of criteria, but it highlights the practice area teams who are providing the most ‘cutting edge and innovative advice’ to corporate counsel. The Legal 500’s research is based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and a team of researchers who have unrivalled experience in the legal market.
“The Legal 500 is an extremely well-respected guide to which law firms are the movers and shakers and we are very proud to be included this year,” says Andrew Hawkins. “We get involved in some complex and challenging deals and work with a variety of clients; this ranking recognises our wealth of expertise and experience.”
CooperBurnett’s deal highlights noted by The Legal 500 include advising long term client Alpha Schools Group on a number of acquisitions; and advising Eleanor Care Homes Holdings Limited, a leading care home operator in the South East, again on a number of acquisitions.
“Our Corporate and Commercial team is very focused but also takes time to get to know each and every client and works closely with them all,” adds Andrew. “The testimonials included in The Legal 500 listing highlight this.”
‘The whole team works very closely together, communicates extremely well, is technically excellent, commercially very strong and a pleasure to work with throughout transactions.’
‘A diverse team of very knowledgeable and switched-on lawyers. Just about as sharp as they come, but with a polite and considerate manner with which it is delivered.’
'Fees are competitive and the practice punches well above its weight for a small regional practice. I have had no hesitation in using CooperBurnett as first port of call on almost all commercial queries.’
‘We have used CooperBurnett for over 30 years in both a private and corporate capacity. Their team provides an elite, experienced and broad range of capabilities across all departments, delivering a highly professional, knowledgeable and friendly service with swift and straightforward communication.’
“I am absolutely thrilled by our listing in The Legal 500 – recognition really doesn’t get better than this,” says Victoria Sampson. “Our Corporate and Commercial team works exceptionally hard and I am very proud.”
