Business in the Community’s Leadership Council

Roger Bull is managing partner at Burges Salmon. As managing partner, Roger has executive responsibility for the firm’s leadership, working closely with the firm’s senior partner, Chris Seaton. 

Roger has extensive knowledge of the employment sector with over 20 years’ experience advising major employers and senior executives on all aspects of employment law. 

Roger also works regularly in a number of key sectors including transport, financial services and education (having previously headed the firm’s education team). 

Roger is a member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association, European Employment Lawyers’ Association, and the Industrial Law Society. He is a regular speaker at external seminars and events across the UK and overseas.  

He says: “Burges Salmon has been a member of Business in the Community (BITC) for over five years and has found the experience overwhelmingly positive. As leaders in the legal sector within which we operate, we have ambitious responsible business objectives and actively working alongside BITC has helped us to deliver those ambitions. This collaboration has included working together on:  

  • The implementation of conscious inclusion training to all our departments; 
  • Increasing carbon literacy within our workforce aligning with our own approach to sustainability and ESG; 
  • Building our network of likeminded business leaders to work together to drive local community initiatives on social mobility and protection of the environment.  

Membership of BITC has helped provide objective validation for our initiatives as demonstrated by our success as a previous winner of the BITC Responsible Business Champion award and a number of The Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality awards.”
