It Was Twenty Years Ago Today….
Shania Twain was riding high in the charts.
The Clarets were languishing in the third tier of English football under Stan Ternent… but soon to be promoted.
…And our gaffer Paul Mulderrig brought down the curtain on his happy partnership with David Small (Mulderrig Small) in order to branch out on his own as Mulderrigs Solicitors.
Commenting on the milestone Paul said “It seems like only two minutes ago, and it’s an opportune moment to say a big thank you to all the staff who have worked so hard over the years, and to all the clients who have been incredibly supportive towards our practice.
Here’s to the next twenty!

Biker Reaches 40K Settlement Following Accident With Unlit Bollard
Diane Bradley suffered a very serious fracture of her arm and shoulder as a result of a motorcycle accident.
She was riding home one dark night when she collided with a bollard in the centre of the road.
The cause of her accident quickly became clear – The local authority were part way through installing a bollard in the middle of the road but just left the unfinished job unlit and without any other lights or warning signs.
We agreed to take on Diane’s case and when we sent a Letter of Claim to the council they quickly admitted that they were at fault.
It took a long while for Diane to recover from her injuries and we then obtained a detailed report from a medical expert.
The council refused to put forward any sensible settlement proposals, so we brought court proceedings on Diane’s behalf.
The trial date was approaching when the council had a change of heart and after some negotiations over the last few days we helped Diane settle her claim for over £40000.
