Andrew Turner General Information A skilled and confident advocate, Andrew Turner is enthusiastic and professional, approaching matters with a strong client and commercial focus. Having spent nearly two decades practising law, Andrew has a depth of knowledge and experience drawn from working both as a solicitor and as a barrister. He prides himself on the quality of his work and his attention to detail, but most of all in achieving the best outcome for his lay and professional clients. He is a qualified mediator. As head of department in his previous firm before transferring to the bar, he assisted in the transition of the firm from being largely RTA based, to be approximately 70% non-RTA in nature. As a result, he is happy to work with firms in a consultancy role where they are looking to make similar changes. Similarly, Andrew regularly attends solicitors’ offices in an ad hoc advisory capacity and is always keen to discuss how he can offer the best service to those who instruct him. Andrew is accredited to accept instructions on a public access basis and his experience as a solicitor makes him a natural choice in such matters. His straightforward and approachable style, excellent bedside manner with lay clients, and commercial awareness make for a winning combination. Based in Staffordshire, Andrew is centrally located and happy to travel nationally.
