He specialises in cases relating to children in the Family Court or the Family Division of the High Court as well as matters of welfare relating to incapacitated adults in the Court of Protection. He primarily appears at the High Court or appellate level. He brings his years of experience as it relates to children in both the public law (care and adoption) sphere and in private law (child arrangement) disputes.
Whilst Andrew is an extremely effective advocate and highly experienced in court disputes, he is passionate about alternative methods of Dispute Resolution as a means to conclude proceedings in appropriate cases. He is skilled in identifying which cases would benefit from a conciliatory approach and which cases require a robust and forthright approach to resolve longstanding or deep-seated areas of dispute.
Andrew is a trained mediator able to work in both children cases and within the Court of Protection. He has a special interest in mediation used to resolve Elder Care disputes.
