Since joining Leigh Day in 2014 Andrew has represented survivors in claims for abuse in various children’s homes, voluntary organisations (such as the Scouts and various cadet forces), religious organisations and sports clubs. He has also brought claims against individuals and been instructed on several cases involving peer-on-peer abuse, including in public law proceedings.
 
A number of Andrew’s key successes at Leigh Day include:
 
  1. Acting in a number of group claims, including for residents of Swaylands School, former pupils of Royal Alexandra and Albert School and children placed in Grafton Close Children’s Home;
  2. Obtained compensation for an abuse survivor whose claim was initially defended on the basis of an abuse of process due to an earlier unsuccessful civil action;
  3. Successfully concluded a claim which had been rejected by a number of other specialist firms; and
  4. Secured a Freezing Injunction over the home of an individual perpetrator of abuse.
 
Andrew is regularly requested to comment on matters of child abuse in national and local press, and has featured on BBC news, ITV news and LBC radio amongst others. He has also been asked to advise on storylines involving child abuse for a television drama. 
 
Previously Andrew has been involved with a number of charities including Victim Support, the Citizens Advice Bureau and the International Women’s Initiative, and is qualified in OCSL Sign Language. He is also a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.
