“When acting for clients who are selling their company, I always tell them this: “You only sell your company once, so it needs to be done on the right terms.” It can take years to build a business, so you need to make sure you don’t rush the sale and take the right advice.”
Andrew is known for his friendly, approachable manner and attention to detail. Many of his clients comment on his ability to explain complicated areas in a way that they can understand and take in quickly.

“I like to get to know the client and understand their business and the commercial rationale behind the transaction. There’s a real buzz you get from successfully completing the transaction and knowing you’ve contributed to their goals.”
