Baines Wilson LLP
Baines Wilson LLP

Baines Wilson LLP is one of the leading commercial law firms in the North of England and ranked as the leading corporate law firm in Cumbria by Chambers Guide.

Since the firm was founded in 1999, we have grown steadily. We are now of a size that we believe is ideal for the firm and our clients – i.e. big enough to be able to field teams of lawyers on complex transactions when required but small enough to ensure prompt and personal attention.

At Baines Wilson, 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 & Commercial • Employment
• Commercial Property • Information Technology
• Intellectual Property • Dispute Resolution and Litigation

All our departments are recommended by the Legal 500 guide and the Chambers Guide. Chambers ranks us as the leading corporate law firm in Cumbria and one of the best in the North west.

Our Clients

Our clients span the full business spectrum ranging from complex international companies to small family businesses and individuals. The bulk of our work comes from the North of England (principally Cumbria and Lancashire), but a significant proportion comes from clients based all over the UK. All our clients have the same requirements – to have the job done well, on time and at the right price.

Our approach

We listen to what our clients want and we then use our skills and experience to get the job done. We provide commercial legal advice. By this, we mean legal advice about corporate and commercial legal matters delivered in a truly pragmatic and understandable manner. We are committed to getting the very best we can for our clients in all circumstances. However, whilst we are committed to providing pragmatic commercial legal advice, we don’t cut corners.

Partner led

Baines Wilson LLP’s partners have all in the past worked for large national or large regional law firms and are used to working to extremely high standards whilst under the greatest of time and other pressures. Our partners are all highly competent technical lawyers who can more than hold their own with the very best national and international firms.

Value for money

Our charges will always be fair and reasonable. Our charges are very significantly lower than the larger commercial law firms in London, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle with whom we primarily successfully compete. However, they are also in line with other non-specialist law firms in the North. We find the larger commercial law firms will often delegate work to non-partners who charge more than our partners despite having much less expertise, and non-specialists charge broadly the same as ourselves.
