For the last 33 years, The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world. The rankings are based on a series of criteria and highlight the 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 text from The Legal 500 confirms that:
“The ‘formidable’ team at Burton Copeland LLP handles a wide variety of criminal litigation, and particularly stands out for its work dealing with organised crime and road traffic offences. The ‘simply outstanding’ Louise Straw is a ‘go-to solicitor’ for high-profile sexual abuse and historical sexual assault cases; she leads the practice with Gwyn Lewis, who focuses on road traffic offences, and Daniel Weed, who specialises in representing police officers. ‘Master of his craft’ Michael Mackey is highly recommended for cases involving complex medical and forensic issues.
At Burton Copeland LLP, Nick Terry has expertise in tax fraud mandates and consultant Mike MacKey handles general fraud work including white-collar crime matters. The team also assists with boiler room fraud, money laundering work and investigations.”
