2 Hare Court (Chambers of Jonathan Laidlaw QC)

Position

Andrew is a highly respected advocate in professional disciplinary work and also in the Crown Court. He was called in 1992 and spent many years in criminal practice principally defending in children and sex cases, as well as developing a well regarded GMC practice and latterly GDC representing those two Regulators at Regulatory hearings. He also undertook work as part of the Treasury Solicitors team representing former soldiers at the Saville Inquiry into Bloody Sunday, and has spent time on secondment to Lloyds of London.

He moved to 2 hare Court over four years ago and quickly established a busy defence practice representing doctors and dentists before the GMC/GDC. His work at the Regulators is now exclusively on the defence side, and covers the whole field from clinical cases to probity and performance. He represents Doctors at Inquests with notable success in avoiding adverse Coronial criticism and defends Doctors in the Crown Court in criminal cases. Andrew is consistently highly rated for his advocacy and judgement, and is a careful and much trusted barrister, taking time and care to put clients at ease. 

He was appointed a Recorder of the Crown Court in 2009.
