Warren Spencer, Managing Director at Blackhurst Budd has been named in the IFSEC Global “Top Influencers in Fire and Security” list for 2018, being ranked number one in the Fire industry professionals or thought leaders category.

Warren is one of the country’s leading fire safety lawyers having prosecuted and defended fire safety cases for over 12 years, working for a number of Fire and Rescue Services in England and Wales. His website www.firesafetylaw.co.uk has become the go-to portal for news, expert opinion and training relating to the Fire Safety Order.

“I’m surprised and delighted to have been ranked so highly by IFSEC and named alongside so many well respected people within the fire safety industry. The law around fire safety is particularly niche, but has received far more media coverage in the last twelve months as businesses and housing providers realise what their exposure could be under the Fire Safety Order” said Warren.

Warren has become a regular speaker at industry events and training courses around the country, providing both legal insight and practical advice.

“I’m planning to develop the website further, particularly on the training side as there’s an increased demand within both the public and private sector for training on where responsibility lies for fire safety and what organisations need to do ensure they are complying with relevant legislation.”
