Our journey so far...


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.


On October 1st 2012, we merged with the long-established firm of solicitors, Partridge & Wilson, also based in Bury St Edmunds and believed to be at least 200 years old.


We were joined by Nick Wray of Haverhill on 1st January 2013 who practised with us as a Crime & Motoring Partner from our offices in Bury St Edmunds until his retirement at the end of 2015.


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.
