Edward James has recently joined the Burnside Partnership. Well known in the Oxford area, Edward has spent over 10 years as a private client lawyer. He is recognised for providing clear and intelligent advice which anticipates and prevents problems from arising.
Edward is especially skilled at dealing with difficult family situations and avoiding disputes. He has an excellent record of obtaining favourable outcomes in the Court of Protection, particularly in helping with vulnerable adults and making sure that the right family members or friends are in control of their/the person’s future well-being. The Burnside Partnership was established by Anna Burnside and Fiona Wheeler as a truly client focused private client law firm. Expert Wills, family trust, charities and tax solicitors take the time to understand your individual circumstances and priorities. You will receive clear and bespoke advice which allows the best arrangements for you and your family to be put in place.
We avoid the jargon, checklists and generic advice which leaves clients hostage to future problems. We provide personal, tailored advice and have established a reputation for combining first rate legal ability with exceptional client service. We see ourselves as the modern version of the traditional ‘family solicitor’, offering ongoing advice and assistance to families through the generations.
Edward joins a strong team.
