Partner & Chief Executive

Julie Bailey

Partner & Chief Executive
I joined Andrew & Co LLP in January 2004 having previously been a Partner at another local firm. I was attracted to Andrew & Co because of the Firm's excellent local reputation and fantastic loyal client base.
 
In 2005 I became Head of the Family Law team and in December 2008 was appointed as the Firm’s Managing Partner. A post which I held until December 2012 when, following the appointment of a Chief Executive, I took on the role of Chair of the Management Board which kept me involved in the strategic management and development of Andrew & Co whilst running a full caseload of Family Law matters.
 
Since September 2015 I have been the Firm's Chief Executive which means I am responsible for  setting the Firm's strategy, in consultation with my other Partners, and spend most of my time ensuring that strategy is delivered with the assistance  of the Heads of our seven technical teams and our  Management Team.
 
There is still time though for me to run a small Family Law caseload, most of which comes to me via recommendation. I am a member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association) and uphold its commitment to resolve disputes in a non-confrontational and pragmatic way where possible whilst ensuring that I always protect my client’s interests.
 
Outside of work I like to watch rugby, go to the cinema and eat Italian food: home cooked or by checking out Italian restaurants locally and on my travels.
