Mark Haslam

Spear's Review

‘I’ve never really done anything other than criminal defence work,’ BCL partner Mark Haslam tells Spear’s. Having qualified in 1981, he joined the firm as a partner in 1998 and has been one of the firm’s key assets in the establishment of its renowned general crime department.

His remit is broad. ‘I represent people on everything from murder to parking tickets and back again,’ he says, when asked to describe his job.

‘We aim to be extremely discreet,’ he says of the firm’s practice.‘We deal with a lot of high-profile clients, and discretion is one of the things that they are looking for, so it’s very high on our list of priorities.’ It’s the aim of the firm, Haslam says, to get cases dealt with as efficiently and cleanly as possible.
