Andrew Marshall is a committed and highly-experienced barrister sought both for his advice and advocacy.

Andrew was made Recorder of the Crown Court in 2003 and Standing Counsel to the Attorney General (Crime) in 2005.

Drawing on many years experience prosecuting at the highest level – and across many different areas – Andrew’s instructions (often through recommendation across prosecuting agencies) in the last decade or so have been in the largest and most difficult or sensitive of cases.

This has resulted in a varied regulatory practice: from the largest investigations/prosecutions undertaken by DEFRA (Op Victor), MHRA (Op Singapore), BERR (Op Barber) and the Environment Agency (Op Durable) through to large MTIC frauds (RCPO/CPS) and insider trading (for FCA) through to smaller, equally important cases such as prosecutions of international arms-trafficking, drug trafficking and money-laundering. He was entrusted to prosecute barristers for alleged VAT fraud and is instructed on some of the more important Environment Agency and Health & Safety cases.

This practice has taken Andrew not only to the Crown Court and the Court of Appeal but also the Administrative Court, the Mercantile Court, Court of Appeal (Civil Division), Chancery Division, First Level Tribunal (Planning Inspectorate for the EA) (Health Education & Social Care for the CQC), coroner’s court and even to speak at the Serious Crime Convention, United Nations in Vienna at the request of the World Health Organisation.

Andrew is a founding director of Edmonds Marshall McMahon solicitors (where he has a complementary practice in private prosecutions) but remains an active member of chambers with a leading practice in regulatory crime.

He is Rrecognised for in the Legal 500 (2017) for his Health and Safety work as a classy and professional courtroom performer and for in ‘white collar’ crime and described (2015) as technically excellent and innovative and a very able and extremely intelligent advocate.

Ranked in Chambers & Partners (2017) for Financial Crime where it was said that he for his has ‘impeccable judgement’: ‘he  and makes complicated things sound simple’ and has ‘extensive experience of prosecuting high-value matters, including alleged tax frauds. He is an expert on document-heavy cases involving complex technical evidence..
