I have substantial experience of working on complex and high value commercial disputes, in particular international and cross-jurisdictional matters. I have fluent Russian, French and German speakers in my team. Recently, I worked for a Russian client on the BP-TNK litigation, successfully achieving a £3billion dollar award for the client. I also acted for a Swiss company in the metals sector and ran a successful multi million pound swaps and derivatives action against an international German bank, as well as acting on an 80 million Euro claim for a German company relating to a complex cross jurisdictional contract.
My team were involved in the BP TNK litigation case and collectively wrote an expert’s report on English Law for the Russian Court resulting in our client obtaining a court award of approximately $3 billion.
I was previously a partner in the international team at a national firm that won the Law Society award for excellence for exporting legal services.
Chambers and Partners (2014) described me as “…building a strong reputation… Sources admire his intellect, pragmatism and amiable manner”.
Legal 500 said “Andy is a 'sharp and detailed thinker' he is 'very experienced'”.
