Practice groupCorporate & Finance

Having headed up the firm's global Corporate practice for over 10 years, Andrew now leads Hogan Lovells' Africa practice, overseeing one of the most dynamic and entrepreneurial groups within the firm.

With his roots in commercial law, Andrew has and continues to act for a wide range of businesses, from sports to consumer, agribusiness, and pharmaceuticals. Most recently, this has involved him advising on complicated and sophisticated contracts across various countries in Africa, in addition to assisting multinational corporates all over the world.

As a partner in the Corporate & Finance practice group, Andrew is renowned for his work and considered by clients as a 'star...very calming influence...has the ability to crack through difficult negotiations' in the Legal 500. Clients often comment on how much they enjoy working with him, not only because of his excellent legal skills covering joint venture agreements, outsourcing, and supply and distribution arrangements, but also because of his problem-solving approach and down-to-earth manner.

Africa is a diverse and ever-evolving business market. As head of the global team, Andrew strives to ensure that Hogan Lovells is recognised as a firm that truly understands, respects, operates, and invests in Africa. We do this by delivering the same high quality of service we are known for globally to international and regional clients with interests on the continent. We work closely with clients and our preferred local law firms to realise opportunities and achieve business goals.

The combination of Andrew's professional career, work in Africa, and appreciation of the arts has created a deep admiration and respect for African art and culture, across various artistic forms which has led to his current position on the National Advisory Board of the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, in addition to his previous role as a trustee of the Royal National Theatre Foundation.
