Andrew joined Birketts from a City law firm in November 2010 and is a Legal Director in our Corporate Finance and Banking Teams.

Andrew is experienced in a wide range of banking and finance transactions and acts for a variety of banking clients as well as various borrower clients. His experience includes real estate finance, including development finance and property investment finance, asset based lending, acquisition / MBO financing and refinancing. Andrew regularly deals with cross border financings for many of his banking clients.

Andrew’s corporate finance practice involves acquisitions, disposals, MBOs and reorganisations (including international transactions) acting for sellers, buyers and other investors. Over the last five years he has developed a particular niche in regard to the acquisition and sale of Lloyd’s limited liability vehicles, either via LLPs or limited companies known as NameCo’s.
