Before joining Clyde & Co’s London office in 2019, Andrew worked in-house at a global insurer where he honed his coverage skills and insurance law expertise, handling a range of large loss financial lines claims with a focus on construction disputes across Scandinavia, the US, Middle East and domestically. Andrew's time in-house has given him a unique overview of how the market works, key insurance developments and cases, and the inter-play of different policy types.
