Andrew has a broad range of expertise in corporate law, regularly advising in respect of share and asset sales, investments and share options (in particular EMI schemes).

His commercial practice is focussed on drafting and negotiating technology contracts, although he also advises in relation to a wide range of commercial issues, such as intellectual property, branding, data protection and sponsorship arrangements.

Typically, Andrew acts for creative and innovative entrepreneurs, facilitating their exploitation of valuable intellectual property and their receipt or provision of specific services or products.  He also regularly advises owner-managers of businesses helping them to secure investment in order to facilitate growth and on the terms of exits after sustained periods of growth.

Andrew provides pragmatic, easy-to-digest legal advice that is aligned with his clients’ commercial goals. He simplifies complex transactions to facilitate completions and has considerable experience successfully negotiating commercial contracts on behalf of clients contracting with larger (and typically far from flexible) organisations.
