Berwin Leighton Paisner is one of the top 20 law firms based in the UK. It was formed through the merger of Berwin Leighton and Paisner & Co in 2001.

History

In 1932 Leslie Paisner formed Paisner & Co which merged in 2001 with Berwin Leighton (formed in 1970 through a merger between Leighton & Co and Berwin & Co) to create Berwin Leighton Paisner.[1] Upon Leslie's retirement in 1976, his sons Martin Paisner and Harold Paisner took over his roles. Harold became managing director of BLP and Martin took over his charitable trusts. Harold's son Jonathan Paisner, a trained lawyer, has also worked at BLP.[2]

Turnover

In 2012/13 BLP received £231.9 million in fees, however after expenditures, such as staff costs and operating costs, are taken away a profit of £52.4 million remains.[3] In 2013/14 this profit rose by 26 percent to £66.3 million.[4] In 2012/13 the company received This increase in profit was partly due to the cutting of staff and the subsequent money saved by a decrease in wages. In 2012/13 BLP paid £90.7 million in wages (£67.4 million in London), this was reduced to £87.1 million (£61.5 million in London).[4] This increase in revenue has helped BLP to pay off £13 million in bank loans 2013/14, bringing their net debt down from £34.6 million in 2012/13 to £29.25 million in 2013/14.[4]

Activities

Energy sector - unconventional oil and gas projects

FrackWell.png This article is part of the Spinwatch Fracking Portal and project

In 2014 BLP said it was advising on a range of unconventional oil and gas projects.

BLP has extensive experience advising oil and gas companies on corporate and commercial oil and gas transactions. The firm is currently advising on a series of mandates involving unconventional resources in the UK and internationally. [5]

It regularly comments on the UK fracking industry, for example in February 2016 its oil and gas experts blogged that the leaked letter published in the Telegraph from three Secretaries of State to chancellor George Osborne - stating that they were minded by early 2016 to bring commercial shale production within Government’s bespoke fast-track development consent process for nationally significant infrastructure projects (NSIPs) under the Planning Act 2008 - 'has in fact been an open secret almost since it was sent'. [6]

Banks

In February 2015 it was announced that the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC had been helping ‘wealthy clients across the world evade hundreds of pounds worth of tax’. The bank has advised around 106,000 clients from 203 countries, including around 7,000 from the UK. Because of this, they now face criminal investigations in the UK, France, Belgium and Argentina.[7] In response to these allegations, HSBC hired Berwin Leighton Paisner and have instructed them to ‘send warning letters to the ‘’Guardian’’ in response to its inquiries’ into the tax evasion claims. Graham Shear, BLP’s London-based dispute resolution partner, was placed in charge of writing to the newspaper. As well as HSBC hiring BLP, their clients have hired law firms Mishcon de Reya, Carter-Ruck, Schillings, Harbottle & Lewis, Withers and Hill Dickinson to write to the ‘’Guardian’’.[8]

Charity work

In recent years Berwin Leighton Paisner have been expanding their Charities Group, which sits inside its Private Client Practice in London. In 2012, after hiring Janet Turner QC to join this group, Martin Paisner said:

'We have a unique Third Sector practice within the UK due to the breadth of our dedicated team, coupled with our ability to draw on the legal expertise of lawyers across the firm. Given our ambition to further develop our reputation as the "firm of choice" in this area we are keen to build on our existing capabilities and attracting someone of Janet’s calibre is a key factor in that regard. She will be an important addition, taking account of her deep understanding of the charity sector and expertise in the areas that are important to our clients.'

The charity team provide charities with commercial advice 'on a full range of legal issues, including cross-border giving, charity incorporations and mergers, the powers and duties of trustees and Charity Commission matters'.[31]

According to BLP's charities brochure, available on their website, they offer charities help with creation, Human capital (devising legally compliant policies and procedures within your organisation), funds and finance, international dimension (helping international charities to operate in the UK or vice versa), infrastructure projects, fundraising, evolution, regulation, and tax.[32]

As well as BLP's involvement with charities, the three Paisners are directors of a range of a charities including personal philanthropic charities for individuals and families, 'Friends of' charities that fundraise for Israeli organisations including universities, UK based zionist policy groups, health related philanthropy for particular causes and educational or welfare UK ventures
