An expert in real estate specialising in mines and minerals, development and construction.
Andy’s clients include leading mine and minerals operators, landed estate owners and real estate developers who turn to him for his transactional skills and attention to detail.

Andy has expertise in advising on routes to unlock asset value and he regularly assembles and manages multi-disciplinary teams to tackle challenges beyond real estate.
Recent examples of how Andy has helped clients include:
- enabling a landowner to sell, and a developer and house builder to transform, a former quarry into a mixed-use scheme of 200 houses, a superstore and a retirement village by advising on planning agreements, risk mitigation and complex engineering covenants;
- ensuring the successful merger between Newcastle-under-Lyme College and Stafford College; and
- enabling the construction of a major £15 million office headquarters by acting as the client’s trusted advisor.
