Practice Overview

Andrew has a busy Commercial Chancery practice across Chambers’ core areas, with interests in civil fraud and asset tracing, offshore and domestic trusts litigation, commercial disputes, company law, and property law. He has appeared in the High Court and Court of Appeal, and acts both alone and in larger teams. Andrew particularly welcomes instructions which involve legal or factual complexity, and which involve international teams working across multiple jurisdictions

Andrew joined Chambers in October 2021 following the successful completion of pupillage. He sat with Gareth Tilley, Dan McCourt Fritz KC, James Brightwell (now Master Brightwell), Matthew Morrison and Christopher Stoner KC.

Andrew spent his first six months in practice on secondment to Peters & Peters Solicitors LLP, where he worked closely with solicitors and counsel on complex and high-profile fraud and commercial litigation.

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 at Wolfson College, Cambridge.
