Andrew Cullen

Barrister (Senior Associate)

Following his call to the Bar in 2013, Andrew has built up a demanding practice across the education, civil, health and government sectors within the firm. With experience spanning personal injury, professional and clinical negligence through to employment, Andrew’s burgeoning practice means that he brings a fresh approach to cases in which he is instructed.

In 2020, Andrew represented a school at a high-profile inquest which involved the tragic death of a young girl who died in the River Irwell in Bury, and he also represented the school during the subsequent judicial review proceedings.

A significant aspect of Andrew’s practice is within the regulatory sector. Andrew frequently prosecutes teachers and is routinely instructed in complex multi-day hearings, hearings which involve historic sexual abuse allegations, acutely vulnerable witnesses, and cases involving financial and exam malpractice.

Andrew also was recently successful in the Upper Appeal Tribunal acting for the Respondent in an appeal which concerned the interface between the Equality Act 2010 and Children and Families Act 2014 in SEN appeal hearings.
