Baines Wilson LLP is Cumbria’s only exclusively corporate and commercial law firm. Indeed we are the only such firm between Preston and Glasgow.
We spend a good deal of our time in West Cumbria, where a lot of our work comes from; increasingly from the nuclear sector where we act for Cumbrian, national and international players.
All of our departments currently are, and have been consistently over the years, recognised by the Chambers and Legal 500 independent guides. In a number of instances, we are the only firm in Cumbria to achieve recognition.
Our partners have all, in the past, worked for large national or large regional law firms. They are all highly competent and technical lawyers who are more than capable of holding their own with the very best national and international firms.
Work Areas - we deal with the full range of commercial legal matters. We have the following specialist teams, which reflect the core areas of our work:
- Corporate and Commercial
- Commercial Property
- Commercial Litigation
- Intellectual Property
- Information Technology
We also offer seminars, workshops and bespoke training packages tailored to meet your specific business needs.
Our Clients - our growing client base spans the full business spectrum, ranging from complex international companies to small family businesses. We have clients throughout the country and further afield, but the bulk of our work comes from the North of England (principally Cumbria and Lancashire).
Wherever they are, all our clients have the same requirements – to have the job done well, on time and at the right price. Our clients receive the quality of legal advice usually only available in the major cities but rates which are very significantly lower than the larger commercial firms in London, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle. Not surprisingly the majority of our new clients previously used such firms.
Our approach - we provide truly pragmatic and understandable commercial advice. We are committed to getting the very best we can for our clients in all circumstances
All of our clients have the option of either seeing our lawyers at our premises, or our lawyers visiting them at their premises – we don’t charge for travelling time whether to Sellafield or Southampton, Workington or Washington or Pica to Paris!
