Position

Andrew is a criminal specialist, principally practicing in consumer and intellectual property work. He is a grade 3 prosecutor for the CPS, and acts frequently for trading standards departments as well as private prosecutors, including industry bodies such as the Federation Against Copyright Theft and regulators.

Recent consumer law prosecutions include securing convictions for fraudulent trading over the course of four years in counterfeit motor vehicle parts; the manufacture and distributing of counterfeit DVDs over the course of three years; the laundering of £50,000 obtained by a rogue trader from a vulnerable, elderly consumer; the passing off horse meat as zebra steaks, which received international media coverage; and the sale by a large retailer of unsafe high-visibility jackets, which resulted in a concession in confiscation proceedings that the company had a criminal lifestyle. His defence practice includes securing a suspended sentence for a defendant accused of trading in counterfeit Sennheiser headphones through Amazon’s online marketplace. 

His intellectual property practice crosses over into the civil courts, and he is currently instructed in a number of matters before the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court. He acted for Sky plc in successful contempt proceedings, following the breach of an undertaking to cease the infringement of copyright works. 

He recently acted for the Architects Registration Board, in the successful first prosecution of an architect for an offence under the Fraud Act.
