Andrew leads our tax team and is dual qualified as a solicitor and Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). He is recognised as a Leading Individual in Legal 500 and has over two decades of experience in corporate and real estate tax, as well as enjoying a focus on tax issues that arise for our public sector clients across the firm.

Andrew advises a wide range of clients from individuals and owner managed businesses to multi-national groups, including in relation to corporate transactions, real estate tax and employee share schemes. In addition, he regularly advises local authorities and other public sector bodies (including in health) on tax issues that arise on transactions and projects they’re involved with, which can often include VAT aspects.

Andrew is a former chair of the West Midlands branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and has previously served on two of its technical sub-committees. He has spoken on tax issues over the years, including events for CIPFA and alongside colleagues on seminars for clients.

As part of his pro bono work, Andrew has been very pleased to serve for over a decade as a non-exec director of a local Birmingham charity working with those in less fortunate circumstances in the city.
