Managing Partner, Bates Wells

Martin Bunch is the managing partner of Bates Wells, a values-driven City law firm. Martin is a practising employment lawyer who has been leading Bates Wells as managing partner since 2013. In this time, he has overseen Bates Wells’ certification as a B Corp and has spearheaded a number of firmwide initiatives to further advance a responsible and sustainable agenda, including narrowing the firm’s salary gap and achieving net zero across all measurable emissions back in 2019.


Under Martin's leadership, Bates Wells is not only committed to sustainability across its own operations, but is dedicated to helping clients to achieve positive impact - whether that's through climate-friendly clauses in contracts, advising on impact investment strategies, or working with partners to achieve legislative change through vehicles like the Better Business Act.
