Over the last 12 months, Birketts has completed corporate transactions with total deals value well in excess of £1bn across a variety of sectors, often across international boundaries. Additionally, Birketts has one of the largest dedicated Property teams within any UK law firm and has been involved in some of the largest strategic land schemes in East Anglia. Our Private Client and Advisory Team continues to advise landowners, business executives, trustees and beneficiaries on the full range of private client matters."
Jonathan concluded: “These achievements, coupled with impressive financial results, appointments, office expansion and team growth are markers of Birketts’ intention to continue to build and sustain a business that is recognised as a leading regional law firm offering London-quality services at a fraction of the costs, to clients locally, nationally and from around the world.”
