I have for some 25 years specialised in two strands of litigation :
i) Divorce and family matters, with particular emphasis on financial issues including disputes relating to higher wealth clients. I also regularly represent unmarried couples in disputes relating to cohabitation and associated property issues together with all types of family disputes involving children.
I am a member of Resolution-the National group of Specialist Family Lawyers who adhere to an agreed Code of Practice and am also a trained Collaborative Lawyer able to represent clients wishing to resolve their differences upon separation and divorce by way of face to face meetings as part of the Collaborative process.
ii) I also act predominantly in insurance claims representing local authorities, their insurers and claims handlers.
Within the Insurance Litigation Department we pride ourselves on being a small, but highly specialised team, with experience in handling all types of insurance claims on behalf of individuals, insurance companies, Claims Handlers and large public sector organisations.
I am also a member of The Law Society. Every one of our clients at Burn & Co Solicitors is important to us and none more so than my own clients many of whom I appreciate are going through a particularly difficult period in their lives and the most appropriate and applicable guidance and advice are necessary.
Inevitably these are not stress-free times but my clients are kept well informed and whilst I seek to progress matters on their behalf efficiently I also aim to do so with understanding and compassion.

Whilst I have commented in earlier correspondence about my appreciation and gratitude for all the work you did for me, I must record it once more. You have always been completely professional and very thorough. Your advice was always positive and objective and your practical and emotional support was unwavering.
– anonymous review written online about Claire Rutter
I experienced a firm whose employees knew their job and how to apply its various facets to its clients. I had every confidence in them throughout, which during the course of a case can become a little nerve-racking for the client. Not so for me in this case. So, I thank Burn & Co for their professionalism. I felt secure at every turn and junction in my case. I would, and will, willingly pass their name on to others.
