"I’m not your run of the mill lawyer.
I am as comfortable in a pair of flip-flops as I am in a pin stripe suit.
Of course, I am good at what I do; more importantly, I’m a human being first and a lawyer second. I’ll put you at ease, understand your concerns and speak your language. You can expect plain talk and straight answers."
Andrew is an internationally experienced and highly regarded commercial/ transactional lawyer.
He is a specialist in Commonwealth and State taxes, superannuation and trusts. He is recommended by Doyle's Guide to the Australian Legal Profession as a Leading Tax Lawyer in South Australia.
He has vast experience advising on structures/ strategic issues and complex succession planning for businesses and high net worth individuals.
Andrew speaks the language of business people. He speaks his mind. He creates solutions. His radar, judgement and intuition are extraordinary. This is why his clients value him.
He advises clients in the same manner that he would wish to be advised – clearly and without jargon, distilling simplicity from complexity, weighing risks against likely returns and providing a roadmap for informed decision-making.
Andrew is as comfortable discussing complex matters with other specialists on a technical level as he is discussing commercial and family business issues with clients on a personal level.
Andrew’s combined experience as a commercial, taxation and private client lawyer is invaluable in a world where tax lawyers work within an academic vacuum, commercial lawyers are ignorant to tax opportunities and consequences and private client lawyers have little understanding or experience of commercial law, structures and tax/ superannuation.
Andrew has over 20 years domestic and international experience as a lawyer.
Before returning to Adelaide in 2005, Andrew worked as a commercial and tax lawyer in international law firms in London, Melbourne and Hong Kong. He has worked on secondment in an investment bank and as a tax accountant with an international accounting firm.
