Andrew is a tax and white-collar fraud litigation lawyer with significant experience in delivering complex large-scale domestic and international compliance investigations.
Andrew was previously in operational command of HMRC’s Panama Papers Taskforce and, in April 2016, established and led HMRC's 500 strong “Offshore, Corporate and Wealthy” enforcement division. He has a clear understanding of their priorities as well as their strategic and tactical relationships with domestic and international compliance agencies - including the SFO, the FCA and the recently established J5 trans-national tax compliance initiative (an operational collaboration with the tax enforcement administrations in the UK, US, Australia, Canada and Netherlands).
Andrew was also the responsible officer for HMRC's approach to the "Corporate Criminal Offence" targeted at organisations which fail to take reasonable measures to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion; and oversaw the delivery of an eight-fold increase in the number of criminal investigations undertaken in respect of Corporate and Wealthy non-compliance.
Andrew has a unique insight to current high end tax enforcement strategies, and works with peers across PM’s contentious tax and White Collar Fraud teams in both the “prevent” and “respond” arenas - helping clients with Risk Assessments, procedures, investigative tools and, should the worst happen and there’s a dawn raid, providing national real time expert support.
