After being called to the bar Buller, whose uncle Sir Francis Buller was a judge, practised as an equity draftsman at Lincoln’s Inn and on the western circuit. He was returned for West Looe on the family interest; he was listed a government supporter and his general conduct in the division lobby bore this out, though no speech is known. He supported Catholic relief 1813-15. In March 1816 he received his reward as an Indian judge, though ‘it is believed he never took his seat on the Madras bench’. He retired from the Bengal bench in 1827 and died 27 June 1866.
