• Experience
    • Nick Burnett is in Birketts' 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 has been a partner with Birketts for 16 years. Nick's clients range from single-owner business to FTSE 250, but the 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). 

      Nick is based at our Chelmsford office.
