Career

Andy has been at the forefront of the Social Housing Bar for many years. He is regularly instructed by local authorities, private registered providers and the leading private solicitors firms in this area on the full range of social housing issues both in respect of litigation and
policy/regulatory issues

Additionally, he works in the public law field, whether that be free-standing challenges (such as homelessness appeals or judicial reviews) or as part of existing proceedings (for example, public sector equality duty and s. 11 Children Act 2004 defences to possession claims).

He is known for his instinctive client care skills, thorough knowledge of the law, tactical awareness and exceptional advocacy skills.

His recent appearances in the higher courts include R (on the application of Martina McDonagh) v Enfield London Borough Council (2018) EWHC 1287 (Admin); Bryn Colin Davies v Hertfordshire County Council [2018] HLR 21 and allocation policy challenges in the administrative court on behalf of the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Andy is an established speaker at seminars and conferences. He is the author of Cornerstone on Social Housing Fraud and has set up a blog to encourage the free flow of information on this topic.

He was called in 1999.
