Wales, Andrew QC

Andrew Wales specialises in insurance and reinsurance, energy, shipping and professional negligence.  

Andrew Wales

His practice regularly involves issues of jurisdiction and conflict of laws.

Wales’ practice is increasingly that of a sole advocate. He regularly appears in the High Court and in arbitration and has recently conducted a full appeal in the Privy Council. Wales is equally at home in long trials and in arguing short points of law.

He has been recognised by the directories for his advocacy (Chambers UK, 2009) and for several years as a leading junior for his insurance and energy work.

Wales has also been appointed as a Recorder to sit in civil cases.
