Qualifications

Solicitor (1981)

Experience

Andrew started working in the law straight from school, qualifying as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1979 and as a Solicitor in 1981 when he joined Veitch Penny .  He became a partner a few years later and is a full member of the later formed LLP.

His entire career has been devoted to the field of litigation.

A very experienced litigator with a particular interest in head injury and psychological trauma / PTSD cases,  Andrew is our Head of Litigation,  our IT partner,  and the firm’s COLP (Legal Compliance Officer), combining his specialist knowledge of complex and high value injury claims with a general litigation practice.

Interests and hobbies

Andrew is a member of the Rotary Club of Exe Valley (Tiverton) in which he served as President 2017-18.  He is Chair of Trustees of Cullompton United Charity (an Almshouse Charity also helping those in need); and is Honorary Member  of Devon Advanced Motorcyclists (a road safety charity) which he  served for many years as Trustee, Secretary and senior “observer”.

He is a keen supporter of  Headway Devon, and Devon Air Ambulance charities.

With two children and four grandchildren,  most of his spare time is occupied by his passion for motorcycling – here and abroad.  However a recently found interest in wood turning now vies for the little spare time he has!
