Burges Salmon is pleased to announce the appointment of its 100th partner, Guy Bastable, to lead the firm’s Corporate Crime team.

Guy joins Burges Salmon from BCL Solicitors LLP as its Head of Corporate Crime, which sits within the firm’s wider Business Crime and Regulatory Investigations (BCRI) team.

Guy has a dual practice that straddles both regulatory enforcement and corporate/financial crime. He specialises in crisis management, corporate internal investigations and corporate and director liability, and is recognised as a leading lawyer in the UK for his work at the interface of business regulation and the criminal law. He advises and represents corporate clients – and their boards and directors – in relation to business-critical issues.

Combining a deep pedigree in criminal law with vast experience of advising corporates, Guy has a wide range of sector expertise that includes utilities, energy, petrochemical, manufacturing, construction, pharmaceutical, financial services, professional services, media and entertainment, and local government.

Guy says: “I know that Burges Salmon has ambitious growth plans and I am pleased to be joining the firm at such an exciting time. Burges Salmon’s Business Crime and Regulatory Investigations team clearly has an in-depth understanding of criminal and regulatory matters, drawn from a range of practice areas, and I’m looking forward to enhancing the firm’s Corporate Crime offering as part of this, in London and across the UK in relation to financial crime, health & safety, environment and other regulatory crime matters.”

Guy Bastable joined Burges Salmon on 1 May 2021.
