Andrew joined the London office in 2016 as UK eDisclosure Project Manager, after nearly 20 years of working as an independent consultant. He supports the Litigation and International Dispute Resolution Practice Groups.
Working closely with the Practice Group Leaders, Andrew advises lawyers in the UK on all aspects of eDisclosure from the initial stages of data identification and preservation, all the way through to selection of courtroom systems. He serves as a resource for lawyers and clients in completing the different protocols used in the disclosure process.
Working closely with the Learning & Professional Development team, Andrew supports and trains trainees and associates, and provides client briefings on litigation readiness and data protection advice.
Andrew is regularly asked to help organise and chair conferences, as well as lead stages, chair webinars and speak at events. He writes white papers and op-ed pieces, blogs on LinkedIn and engages on eDisclosure issues on Twitter. He also produces an annual report on LegalTech and the Buyer’s Guide to eDisclosure systems.
Andrew was part of the working party that produced the TCC protocol and was the main contributor to the second version of its guidance notes. He continued to support that initiative, offering training to lawyers and the judiciary. The guide to eDisclosure that he produced for the TCC was cited in the recent Pyrrho Investments v MWB Property Ltd judgment. The lawyer that provided the witness statement underpinning this ruling attended one of Andrew’s training courses.
Andrew chairs the UK ILTA eDisclosure Special Interest Group that launched a best practice exchange protocol in January 2019.
