Burnett Seona

Senior Legal Director and Co-Head of Legal Counsel Service

Meet Seona Burnett

I am a member of the Legal Counsel Service team, providing general commercial legal advice to our clients on a wide range of issues. I am an intellectual property and contract law specialist, but I also advise on many other matters, from advertising and marketing laws to software supply and development and from agency, distribution, and logistics to data protection and privacy.
Our Legal Counsel Service allows me to get to know the commercial strategy and business environment underpinning the day-to-day operation of our clients’ business, and so I am able to give advice or deal with issues in context. That support will always focus on pragmatic solutions.

Getting to work with varied and dynamic businesses and with talented people is a challenging and very rewarding part of the Legal Counsel Service. Every day is different.

I am a tutor in IP at the universities of Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
