Nick Burnett is a Partner in our Corporate and Commercial Team in Chelmsford. He is, by any account, an unusual lawyer. In the midst of a successful legal career in corporate law in London in the early 1990s, Nick became the manager of a British rock group, New Model Army. This gave Nick a valuable insight into running a complex business and the experience of using other lawyers.

Nick qualified as a Solicitor in March 1980 and has been a Partner with Birketts for 21 years. Nick's clients range from the single-owner business to companies listed on the London Stock Exchange, but the entrepreneurial and family-owned business remains the mainstay of his practice.

Nick has particular interest in the international side of the firm's business and is a recent past Chairman of its international association, IAG International (IAG).
