After 21 years with Ince & Co, Nick Burgess is the latest partner to join Bob Deering and David McInnes at BDM Law. Nick Burgess was formerly the head of Ince’s Japan, Russian and Turkish teams. He is well known in the London shipping market and represents many clients in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Turkey and Russia.
Nick Burgess said:
“I am delighted to join my former Ince colleagues at BDM Law. I hope to continue to work with the clients who I have known for many years and to build relationships with new clients in our specialist sectors. The legal market is changing. Many firms have decided to go for consolidation and diversification. At BDM we have decided to go the other way and focus on doing what we do best whilst maximizing value and minimizing cost. In my case that means continuing to work for those clients who I know in the shipping, trade and insurance sectors in the London market as well as in Japan, Asia, Russia and Turkey.”
Bob Deering, co-founding partner of BDM Law, welcomed Nick to the firm:
“Nick Burgess was always part of our plans for BDM which is why we included his initial in the firm’s name. He is one of the most highly regarded shipping lawyers in London and was a leading figure at his former firm. The fact that Nick has decided to join us at BDM shows the confidence that he has in our business model which is to deliver quality legal advice to our clients at a competitive price. In our specialist sectors, clients place considerable emphasis on personal relationships. Nick has well established relationships with many clients around the world and I have no doubt that they will continue to instruct him at BDM.”
