Associate Partner Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation

Andrew is a solicitor in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution department at Keelys.

Prior to joining Keelys in 2012 Andrew enjoyed a varied career which has seen him called to the Bar of England & Wales, and working in firms across London and East Anglia.  This breadth of experience is reflected in Andrew’s daily practice, which encompasses most forms of civil litigation, but with a particular emphasis on contractual disputes, residential and commercial landlord and tenant problems, insolvency and contentious probate matters.  Whatever the particular nature of your problem, Andrew will strive for a commercial and cost-effective outcome.

Away from work Andrew is usually found on the hockey pitch, representing North Stafford, or attempting to climb rocks.  Both of these pastimes afford Andrew the opportunity to discover new and ingenious ways to injure himself!
