Andrew is a partner in our employment team acting for businesses, individuals and public sector and education bodies. Over and above his wealth of experience in the general employment law field, he has specialist expertise in the areas of European employment law, industrial relations and HR support. His significant client base ranges from UK Government departments and higher education establishments to SMEs without an in-house HR facility. Andrew is also a member of our Brexit group.
Andrew leads the teams which support our clients HM Revenue & Customs, the Department for Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, UK Government Legal Department, Scottish Ambulance Service and St Andrews University. Commercial clients include NACCO Materials Handling, McAlpine and Stobo Castle Health Spa.
Andrew’s experience includes advising employees, representing them in settlement agreements and in the Employment Tribunal. He is regularly instructed in employment matters across the UK and is a tutor in Employment Law on the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at Edinburgh University. His topical articles on employment law are featured in national newspapers and other major publications and he also coordinates the publication of our client bulletin: Employment Law Lessons.
In his precious spare time, Andrew likes to socialise with family and friends and has – on occasion – been to the gym.
