Jeanette Burgess, Partner, Regulatory & Compliance


Jeanette specialises in regulatory law and heads up a varied practice serving national and international clients on issues ranging from consumer finance, FCA regulation, fraud, data protection including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), money laundering and health and safety compliance.

In herĀ 23 year career, Jeanette has acquired valuable experience from a number of difference perspectives, having previously worked for DLA Piper, the UK Financial Services Authority enforcement team, and Provident Financial plc.

She is described in The Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession as being “very commercially minded in trying to bring about solutions” and is also praised by clients in the Acritas Stars Survey for “her ability to give constructive legal advice whilst bearing in mind commercial pressure.”

In their words

"I relish the opportunity to build long-standing relationships with clients; understanding their business fully helps me tailor my advice to best meet their needs and provide practical, commercial advice which factors in their long term as well as short term goals. Every day is different; dealing with regulators and managing crisis situations from dawn raids to product recalls is challenging but very satisfying when you help to deliver the right results."
