  Calum Burnett



Calum heads the UK Litigation & Investigations Group at Allen & Overy. He specialises in contentious regulatory work and has very extensive experience of acting for financial institutions in high profile, complex regulatory investigations, both domestically and cross-border. He also has experience of acting for institutions in Serious Fraud Office investigations.

Calum has advised major financial institutions across a very broad range of regulatory issues, including market abuse and insider dealing, AML and anti-bribery and corruption, mis-selling, fraud, cyber security breaches, regulatory reporting and other types of systems and controls failings. He also represents senior individuals in regulatory investigations.

Legal directories recognise Calum as a leading individual for contentious regulatory matters. Chambers UK 2018 says that he is “forward thinking, technically flawless and clear-sighted” and Chambers UK 2019 reports that “he is a go-to on contentious regulatory matters – he has a huge wealth of experience, is very impressive intellectually and has good commercial sense.”
