With over 23 years’ experience of resolving high value and complex commercial disputes, including 12 years of providing litigation funding solutions and alternative fee arrangements for clients, the Legal 500 has described Andrew as one of the “forerunners in the use of third-party funding”.
He specialises in multi-party actions, court applications to freeze assets, breach of trust and fraud claims, claims against other professionals and directors’ misfeasance claims. Andrew helps claimants find greater access to justice through litigation finance and other contingent fee arrangements.
Andrew focuses on shaping potential claims and their cost budgets into viable litigation funding opportunities, securing the most competitive terms for his clients, and managing their claims to a successful conclusion whether through the courts or other commercial means.
Andrew often advises litigation financiers and other solicitors on aspects of litigation funding, alternative fee arrangements for their clients, and how to structure their litigation management, funding, insurance and fee agreements.
Through ‘outsourced’ underwriting arrangements, Andrew has also advised litigation funders on the merits of funding applications made by other law firms and has assisted funders to monitor and manage those cases to successful conclusion. Andrew has spoken about litigation funding at the Legal 500 Commercial Litigation Conference, provides training on litigation funding and alternative fee arrangements, and has published material in this area in Financier Worldwide, In-House Lawyer magazine and Huffington Post.
There is a lot of steel in him.
