Andy has been a member of Slater and Gordon’s Class Actions team since 2010. Throughout his time working within this group Andy has developed significant litigation experience working with high-profile and complex litigation, and has played key roles in the design and implementation of many large-scale forensics and technical analysis involved in Slater and Gordon’s class actions.
Andy is currently involved in the Parkerville bushfires litigation in Western Australia and the Essure class action. He also provides high-level support in the Spotless class action and the Vocus class action.
Andy has worked on most of Slater and Gordon’s major securities class actions in his time with the firm, including the claims against Centro, Nufarm, GPT, Billabong and Newcrest. Andy has also been part of the teams pursuing breach of trustee duties class actions against trustees of Provident Capital Limited, Australian Capital Reserve, and Fincorp.
Other significant cases Andy has been involved in include the Manus Island class action, the Australian Vioxx litigation, the Croydon Day Surgery class action, and the Fairbridge Farm School class action in New South Wales.
In addition to his class action work, Andy has been involved in numerous pieces of complex commercial litigation and other projects, such as ‘waffle slab’ heave claims against Metricon, negligence and nuisance claims in relation to GM Canola crops, and the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.
Andy has been proud to use his significant experience and technical skills to help conduct novel and important pieces of litigation at Slater and Gordon in an efficient and effective manner, helping to assist group members who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to seek redress for their losses, and ensuring Slater and Gordon produces the best returns for claimants possible.
