Andrew has developed an impressive and diverse commercial practise.  He has deepest experience in disputes about international trade, shipping, civil fraud, insurance and reinsurance.  Many of his cases concern very substantial sums of money.

He is valued for the practical approach he takes to achieving his clients’ goals.  This always involves developing a long-term strategic plan.  It frequently involves seeking some form of interlocutory relief.  As a result, Andrew has experience of dealing with search orders, domestic and worldwide freezing injunctions, mandatory injunctions, anti-suit injunctions, Norwich Pharmacal orders and applications to dispute jurisdiction.

Andrew’s successes over the last year include a High Court marine insurance claim in which he appeared as sole counsel (McKeever v Northernreef [2019] 2 Lloyd’s Rep 161 ) and in which he ran an aggressive and effective enforcement action (McKeever v Northernreef [2020] 4 WLUK 244), an appeal to the Court of Appeal in a high-value dispute about the shipment of iron ore (Classic v Limbungan [2019] EWCA Civ 1102), and a substantial interlocutory fight in a claim about alleged secret commissions (Besso v Bloody Bay CL-2018-000598).  He has also been instructed to appear in arbitrations under LMAA, HKIAC, ICC and LCIA rules.

He was described by The Lawyer magazine as a “star” for his part in Orb a.r.l. v Ruhan [2015] EWHC 262 (Comm).
