Andrew Gurr


Year of Call: 2020

Practice Overview

Andrew joined Chambers in October 2021 following the successful completion of pupillage. He was supervised by Gareth Tilley, Dan McCourt Fritz, James Brightwell, Matthew Morrison and Christopher Stoner QC. He is currently on secondment with the commercial litigation team at Peters & Peters building his experience of complex international fraud and asset tracing claims, and will be accepting instructions from April 2022.

During pupillage, Andrew worked on cases across Chambers’ core areas of practice including a 10-week hybrid trial in the Chancery division, a landmark trusts appeal in the Privy Council and applications for urgent without notice relief in a £30m fraud claim.

Andrew is interested in the whole range of Chancery and Commercial work and has particular interests in civil fraud, property, commercial remedies, and trusts (including specialist trust issues in matrimonial finance).

Before joining Serle Court, Andrew studied law at Clare College, Cambridge. He graduated with a double first-class undergraduate degree, the top mark on the Cambridge LLM and several university prizes and scholarships. During his BPTC year Andrew was a Queen Mother’s Scholar at Middle Temple and taught Land Law to undergraduate students at Wolfson College, Cambridge.
