Partner

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.

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 the firm's Chief Executive, I took on the role of Chair of the Management Board. A role which allows me to remain involved in the strategic management and development of Andrew & Co. Since September 2012 I have been the firm's Chairman which means I am responsible for setting the Firm's strategy, in consultation with my other Partners, and the ensuring that strategy is delivered by our seven technical teams and the Management Team.

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 rugby (watching not playing), going to the cinema and Italian food: home cooked or by checking out Italian restaurants locally and on my travels.
