Andrew was educated in the USA and England and called to the Bar in 1990. He is a highly sought-after, experienced criminal defence barrister, regularly instructed in heavyweight cases across the full spectrum of criminal law.
Andrew is particularly adept in cases where there is a need to combine robust advocacy with the effective management of complex case papers and sensitive issues. Instructing Solicitors regularly comment upon his remarkable effectiveness as a jury advocate, and his excellent client management skills.
Andrew has extensive experience in “white collar” crime, dealing with all aspects of fraud and financial crime; areas where his previous employment in the Investment Banking sector give him invaluable insight and expertise.
Andrew has previously provided advocacy training to the CPS and interview training for CID officers in respect of sexual offences. In representing clients charged with these most sensitive of matters, Andrew ensures that the Defendant’s case is properly put to their best advantage, without alienating the jury or judiciary. This approach has led to him being repeatedly commended by trial judges for his “sensitive yet effective” cross-examination of complainants.
