Additional Information

As a late entrant to the Bar, Andrew brings a maturity and wisdom well beyond his year of call. As such, Andrew is regularly instructed on many serious offences within the criminal calendar. Through choice, Andrew only defends and is able to maintain a healthy practice in no small part due to his ability to interact with diverse clients and his absolute understanding of what is expected of the modern practitioner.

Andrew has recently been instructed on cases of serious violence, sexual offences, fraud and drugs. He was recently a led junior in one of the largest ever prosecutions of “rogue traders”. This four month VHCC conspiracy trial at Bristol Crown Court culminated in an acquittal for the Defendant represented by Andrew and his Leader, Andrew Judge, also of Westgate Chambers. Three other defendants were convicted, one other was acquitted.
