Emma Andrews Senior Associate – Projects


I joined Burges Salmon in January 2013, having previously worked at DLA Piper in Birmingham and Greenberg Traurig Maher in London. Prior to my move to Bristol, I had been commuting from Birmingham to London and decided it was time for a change. My husband and I decided to locate to Bristol to be nearer to his family in South Wales.

Burges Salmon was extremely helpful during the relocation process, providing access to property agents, lots of information about the local area and financial assistance to help with the move.

We are now firmly settled in Bristol and have bought a house just south of the river which we are renovating (close to the bars and restaurants on North Street). We love Bristol as a city. There is always something happening: from the Harbour Festival and the International Balloon Fiesta to comedy, theatre and music gigs at the Colston Hall, The Tobacco Factory or Bristol Old Vic. It’s also really easy to get out of the city at the weekend and head to the coast.

By background I am a commercial contracts and infrastructure projects lawyer and I am now part of the projects team, where we are working on cutting edge deals and renewables and waste projects with some of the biggest utilities and developers. I am using my skills in a growing and fast-moving sector in which the firm is a market leader.
