Andrew is a Senior Associate in the Family team.
Specialising in negotiating financial settlements after divorce for wealthy families, including entrepreneurs, professional sports personalities, celebrities or their spouses. This includes dealing with complexities of multi-million pound business assets, investments, property and pensions after divorce, separation or the dissolution of a civil partnership.
Working with couples, Andrew also helps clients to agree positive arrangements for parenting following breakup, particularly for international families where there may be a wish for children to leave the UK.
Where couples wish to maintain an amicable relationship, he offers the alternative of a collaborative approach to achieving an agreement over arrangements regarding finances and children.
Recent examples of how Andrew has supported clients include:
- winning an appeal at the High Court that improved one spouse's share from 5% to 40% of property acquired before the marriage: SvS .
- showing that a husband had attempted to mislead the court with fraudulent information about the effect of head injuries caused by a motorbike accident, and improving the financial settlement obtained by the wife; and
- gaining the rarely granted permission of the court to allow a child to leave the UK in order to live in the care of an aunt and uncle in St Vincent in the Caribbean.
