Commercial clients include Hyster-Yale Group, McAlpine & CO Ltd and Stobo Castle Health Spa.
Andrew’s experience includes advising employees, representing them in settlement agreements and in the Employment Tribunal. He is regularly instructed in employment matters across the UK, is a tutor in Employment Law on the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at University of Edinburgh and an External Examiner for University of Aberdeen. He is Accredited as a Specialist in Employment Law by the Law Society of Scotland. He is recommended by the legal directories both for Employment Law and for Education Law.
In his precious spare time, Andrew likes to socialise with family and friends and has – on occasion – been to the gym.
