A brief history
1979 Burnett Barker Solicitors was established by Robin Burnett and David Barker, with the aim to provide the people of Bury St Edmunds with professional yet straightforward legal services.
2012 On October 1st 2012, we merged with the long-established firm of Partridge & Wilson, also based in Bury St Edmunds and believed to be at least 200 years old.
2013 We were joined by Nick Wray of Haverhill on 1 January 2013 who practised with us as Crime & Motoring partner from our offices in Bury St Edmunds until his retirement at the end of 2015.
2016 The firm entered its 2nd generation of ownership on 1st January 2016, following a management buyout led by Chief Executive, Daryl Griffiths, and became Burnett Barker Solicitors Limited.
