Congratulations to Edmund Burge KC, who the Senior Presiding Judge of England & Wales has appointed to the panel of Recorders who are authorised to sit at the Old Bailey. Edmund was appointed a Recorder in 2018. He is authorised in crime, including criminal appeals and serious sexual offences, and civil cases.
Edmund is a specialist criminal advocate, ranked in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500. He was called by Lincoln’s Inn in 1997 and took Silk in 2019.
He both prosecutes and defends the full range of serious criminal offences, from complex tax and commercial fraud to allegations of murder, serious violence and other organised crime. His cases frequently involve multi-defendant trials with an international dimension, such as cross-border arms trafficking & brokering and corruption, and often raise substantial issues of jurisdiction, disclosure, and public interest immunity. He also regularly provides pre-charge advice on the strategy of responding to on-going investigations particularly into allegations of commercial crime.
