Following a change in legislation in April 2009, Andrew was one of the very first non-lawyers to be appointed to a partnership of a law firm in England. He spent the first part of his career at NatWest Bank where he undertook a variety of roles including time as an Inspector of Trustee branches and a Senior Manager in charge of a team of high net worth investment advisers. Moving to Barwells in 1998, Andrew was instrumental in setting up the firm’s financial advisory arm and was a key member of the Private Client Department, until moving over full-time to the role of Practice Director for the Firm. Andrew is a member of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, and holds their Trustee Diploma. He also holds the Personal Finance Society Diploma having passed their Advanced Financial Planning examinations.
Outside the office, Andrew is a keen golfer and skier. He also plays the bass guitar quite badly.
