Burton Copeland enjoys a national reputation across a whole spectrum of criminal litigation. In 2020 they were the winners of The Small Firm of the Year award at Manchester Law Society Legal Awards. They have also been the winners of Crime Team of the Year and Regulatory Team of the Year. 2020 also saw Burton Copeland awarded in The Times Best Law Firms of 2020 for a second year in a row.
The firm’s unique selling point is their reputation for expertise and competence throughout the whole spectrum of criminal law, from serious and organised crime through to regulator work and road traffic offences.
