He represents a wide and impressive client base in the public and private sectors that includes national and international companies, charities, smaller enterprises and senior executives. Andrew has developed a particular specialism in providing employment advice to the education sector where he represents higher and further education establishments as well as a number of schools in the independent and public sectors, including academies.
