We are delighted to announce that we are heading for significant expansion as a business, as reported by The Manchester Law Society Messenger today. Although the pandemic has brought challenges to the legal sector, with many legal firms forced to close or merge, we are pleased to say that Burton Copeland are expanding across all departments.
Our regulatory department has seen a major expansion in new work representing medical professionals, teachers, police officers, and other professionals requiring assistance with professional discipline. We have also opened up new revenue streams in other areas such as public inquiries and inquests. Furthermore, we have recently applied for a Legal Aid contract outside of Greater Manchester.
Daniel Weed, Equity Partner puts our recent success due to early recognition of new marketplace trends, and being agile enough to adopt them quickly:
“We recognised a number of years ago that the marketplace was changing and the internet was the new high street. This led to us investing significantly in this area and in technology generally. We are now reaping the rewards of that investment and are extremely busy with internet-based enquiries, both in relation to criminal and regulatory cases. The pandemic has inevitably changed the way that businesses operate in terms of remote working etc, but we were heading in that direction anyway. Rather than have the overheads of multiple offices around the country we now have our main hub in Manchester but have consultants and agents across the country.
“Over the past few years Burton Copeland’s client base has expanded significantly and they are seen as the go-to firm for insurance companies when their policy holders require representation for criminal, regulatory, or inquest expertise. They are also now the sole provider of legal services to the Fostering Network who represent over 400000 foster carers nationwide.”
Two fundamental aspects of our business here at Burton Copeland are client satisfaction and staff welfare. We are proud to say we have superb staff retention, and key loyal staff who have been with the business for over 20 years.
Daniel Weed notes the importance of client satisfaction as one of the reasons for our ongoing success:
“Whilst we have expanded our corporate client base significantly, much of our work is driven by word of mouth from clients who have received a superb service. We recognised this well before the explosion of the world wide web and social media, and nothing has changed. The fact the few people now order a takeaway without looking at online reviews has assisted us greatly. Many of our new clients are driven either by previous or existing client referrals.”
All of this has led to the biggest recruitment drive in our 35 year history.
