Andrew Bland – Principal

Andrew has been providing skilled and practical guidance as a solicitor and workplace advisor for – and we can hardly believe it ourselves – some 20 years.

Why choose Andrew as your legal advisor?

We could cite his impressive credentials in employment relations, commercial law and litigation. Not to mention Andrew’s experience in meeting the legal and business planning needs of high-end businesses, including his previous life as a partner at a ‘Big Four’ professional services firm. We could talk about his keen commercial focus, as well as his core strengths in risk assessment and mitigation.

But Andrew’s key attribute lies in his friendly and relaxed approach and refusal to use ‘lawyer-speak’ in translating all that knowledge and experience into practical solutions for his clients. This effectively enables you to understand quickly what the priorities are, and what action needs to be taken. Added to this, Andrew has perfected the art of retaining a rational and calm approach in even the most challenging situations.

Andrew is a well-regarded speaker on employment issues and regularly presents to various industry groups. He is also a regular guest speaker on Peter Switzer’s Business show on Sky news.

Outside of work, Andrew is a keen sports fan, early-morning pavement-pounder , and father of three.
