About David Burrin
David qualified in 1998 and has extensive experience obtained from private practice prior to joining the in-house legal team for a local authority in July 2011. He joined Invicta Law in 2017.
David is a very experienced lawyer whose previous practice covered contract litigation, property litigation (in particular, large leasehold investments), professional negligence (in particular, surveyors and solicitors), employment law advice for small to medium sized businesses, and niche insolvency advice for a firm of international insolvency practitioners.
He has conducted hearings in the County Court before District and Circuit Judges, the Employment Tribunals, the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (now the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber)) and before Licensing Committees of Local Authorities. He now advises on mental health and mental capacity.
In his experience clients, whether they are social workers, head teachers, or managing directors “want to move forward, they do not want lectures in the law”. So, whilst he does like a legal argument, David is very much focused on delivering real impactful practical solutions. “The difference really is the context. You can know a lot about the law, but that alone is no good. If you are advising a public body then you need to understand how that body interacts with, and is accountable to, its staff, its Members and the public”.
