Guy Westmacott

Partner: Bedell Cristin

What does a typical day look like for you? 

There’s just no typical day, but my time is usually split between promoting our firm to potential clients and referrers (often in London), spending time with our associates and trainees to help their development and client work, which for me is corporate law.

How did you get your job? 

I studied languages at university followed by a postgraduate diploma in law, an LPC and then a training contract in the UK. Aspiring lawyers can now follow the SQE route to study and qualify while working with Bedell Cristin. 

What is the best part of your job? 

A completed deal with a happy client. And bacon rolls with the team on a Friday morning.

What advice would you give someone interested in a career in law?

Start getting familiar with legal tech, which is already revolutionising the industry. 

What would you tell your younger self?

Grab every opportunity to develop your business and legal experience.
